In 1998, voters in Washington approved Initiative 200, which many interpreted as ending affirmative action in the state. It turns out that interpretation is incorrect, and that has resulted in a terrible cost for BIPOC communities and women for 23 years.
Today, an organization called Washington Equity Now Alliance, is dedicated to righting what is a historic wrong. We’re joined by five-term state representative Jesse Wineberry to talk about what’s being done, and about how you can help.

Also asking LDs and County Democratic orgs to pass a resolution in support of this.
