Who We Are

The WA Voting Justice Coalition is a group of community organizations and individuals, dedicated to voting rights and access in Washington State. We believe that the vote is our tool, as ordinary people, to have a voice in our government. Washingtonian voters should have the opportunity to cast their ballot, and have it counted.

Our Values

The Washington Voting Justice Coalition supports reforming the root causes of low turnout and voter registration rates. We believe that these problems are built into our political, civic, and cultural practices and that the first step to change is addressing the way we do our work. As a coalition, we strive for equity, transparency, and the centering of those most affected.

Our Guiding Principles

Racial EQUITY

We are creating a vibrant movement that leads with racial equity by prioritizing and being accountable to communities most impacted by voting barriers.

REDEFINING WINS

We will redefine a win that’s creative, transformative, and radical that isn’t only defined by what policies we win, but how we are able to do it.

TRANSPARENCY & EQUITY IN DECISION MAKING

We have a transparent and equitable decision-making process and resource allocation model that focuses on those most impacted by voting access issues.
