Description

Sister Districts WA CD 1 & 2 Meeting, February 15th, 6:00, Burlington Library

Speaker:
Cindy Black, Executive Director of Fix Democracy First.  Their website describes their mission as follows:
The root cause of many of our social, political, and environmental problems is our dysfunctional democratic system. Money in politics and voter suppression are causing the voice of the nation to be muffled or just outright ignored.

Our best chance of improving the trend of a decline in our democratic system of government is to  make voting fair, easily accessible, and representative. We must curtail the ability of wealthy donors and corporations to influence elections.

In Washington State Fix Democracy First is fighting and making meaningful progress by continuing to improve our democratic institutions including the state and local voting and elections systems.

Sister Districts Project (SDP) is a national grassroots organization that is seeking to flip red/purple seats to blue on the state and federal level by channeling blue energy to red/purple districts.  In 2017, SDP focused on those state races that were both strategic and winnable. In Washington State, LD 45 had been identified by the state Democratic party as a race to support and SD help elect Democrat Manka Dhingra.
