Last year, nearly 400,000 voters petitioned lawmakers to support Initiative 1000, restoring fairness and opportunity to Washington’s public employment, contracting, and education enrollment policies.

Our State Legislature listened, and passed I-1000, but special interests are paying to overturn this law.

Now it is up to voters to vote for fairness and equal opportunity by approving I-1000, Referendum 88.

Staggs provided security for the sponsors of Referendum 88 as they turned in signatures this past July. This is horrifying—and we demand that our opposition explain themselves.
