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

March On For Voting Rights – WA State Virtual March
August 28th, 12pm
Join Fix Democracy First, WA Indivisible Network & League of Women Voters of WA for a statewide virtual event to stand up for voting rights!
Since January, 48 states have introduced 389 bills that amount to shameful, outright voter suppression, and many have already become law.
Racist, anti-democratic voter suppression laws amount to rigging the game. But in America, elections are not a game—and lives depend on their outcomes.
That’s why, on August 28, 2021, Washington state is joining Washington D.C., Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Phoenix and other cities across America to March On For Voting Rights!
