Statement against outing and harassment of a transgender minor and UW's response

Earlier this month, anti-trans activist Riley Gaines publicly outed a transgender student, a minor, to her followers on Twitter/X. The student, who had verbally accepted a women's volleyball scholarship to the UW (University of Washington) was harassed online by Riley Gaines, her followers, and the group ICONS, an anti-transgender group that attacks transgender girls and women in sports. Later that week, Riley Gaines posted on social media claiming that UW Volleyball had rescinded the scholarship.

The Green Party of Washington supports transgender people in all ways in society, sports included. If it is true that UW rescinded the scholarship, we call for an immediate reversal of this decision and an apology to the student. Otherwise, we believe this decision by the UW should be investigated as a Title IX violation against UW Volleyball.

It is apparent that Washingtonians and those who wish to come here must be protected from harassment and the prying eyes of states or individuals.

Just last week, transgender journalist Erin Reed broke news that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is demanding medical records from Seattle Children's Hospital for all patients who live in Texas. Ken Paxton is also requesting medical instruction to stop transition care for those patients, making it transparent the intent to do harm. Wisely, Washington passed a “Shield Law” last year that prevents the sharing of protected medical records such as transition or abortion care to states that restrict that care, which has, at least for now, prevented the sharing of private medical information.

Looking back at the Riley Gaines social media posts against the student, Riley attacks that the student and her parents somehow "hid" her transgender status from the coach, school, teammates, and other kids' parents. It is important to understand that transgender status is medical information and should, as all medical information, be protected; expecting children to share their private medical history with anyone who might care is a perverse violation of the right to privacy — a right that too clearly has been insufficiently protected.

So then, the Green Party of Washington also calls on legislators to address gaps in "malicious disclosure" of private medical information as a form of harassment that should not be protected speech. Such legislation prohibiting malicious disclosure would serve to protect all who live or come to Washington from an individual or organization sharing private medical information, to similar effect as the law that recently stopped Texas from being able to demand that information.

Call for Congress Town Hall


Join us on Sunday, October 15th at 4pm PT / 7pm ET for a Town Hall conversation with Washington State Green Party Congressional candidate Jason Call


The Green Party of Washington is excited to introduce Jason to a national audience!

Jason is a lifelong progressive activist on issues ranging from healthcare to education to peace action to climate action. He is a former high school math teacher of almost two decades and was elected to the board of his local Education Association for a number of years. He has been active in ballot initiative efforts over the last decade, including I-502 which legalized cannabis in Washington (first in the nation), I-1433 which gave Washington the highest minimum wage in the country, and I-735 which saw Washington become the 18th State to support the movement to Amend the Constitution and overturn Citizens United. Jason has served for 5 years on the board of Whole Washington (, one of the strongest state-based single-payer organizations in the country.

Jason has run for the WA-02 Congressional seat twice before and came in a close 3rd place both times in the ‘Top Two’ primary. A 2nd place finish would put Jason through to the general election against the corporate-funded incumbent, an outcome that is eminently winnable.

Jason’s website is detailed, with in-depth policy positions, gold star opposition research on the incumbent (a fossil fuel and war machine-backed Democrat seeking his 13th term), media spots, press releases, and op-eds from prior races, and also explains why Jason left the Democrats to join the Green Party.

This race is a real opportunity, with the potential to see the first Green member of Congress!

We look forward to this online event, and we encourage you to come and meet this engaging, knowledgeable, and experienced candidate!

Seattle Greens endorse Workers Strike Back!

Workers Strike Back is an independent, rank-and-file campaign organizing in workplaces and on the streets against the bosses and their political servants.

Workers are falling further and further behind, while billionaires and big business hoard the wealth that workers create. Workers Strike Back was launched by socialist Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant, Socialist Alternative, and others who want to build a national movement to fight back. Workers Strike Back takes inspiration from the hundreds of thousands of workers fighting to unionize at Amazon, Starbucks, and workplaces everywhere; the movement to defend abortion rights in the U.S.; the Enough is Enough working-class campaign in the UK; and the ongoing struggles of workers and young people to stop climate catastrophe and fight for a better society.

The Green Party of Seattle supports the demands of Workers Strike Back: 


Workers Need a Real Raise

Biden and corporate politicians in Congress keep giving themselves raises but can’t pass a bare $15 federal minimum wage for working people. We strongly support the fight for a $25 an hour starting wage by workers trying to unionize their workplaces—in major cities that’s just a basic living wage. As prices skyrocket on everything from food to housing, we need at least a 20% raise for all workers with automatic cost-of-living increases above inflation going forward. Instead of long hours and multiple jobs just to pay the bills, we need to shorten the workweek with no loss in pay and benefits. We work to live, not live to work!


Good Union Jobs for All

With billionaires and corporations making obscene profits, there is no reason we cannot have good union jobs for all. Unions are the key tool workers have to fight the bosses for the things we desperately need. Organize the unorganized—unionize Amazon and every workplace! We need to rebuild a fighting labor movement that arms itself with clear, bold demands and is prepared to go on strike to win them. We need a massive green jobs program that can employ millions of workers in clean energy and prevent climate catastrophe. To succeed, we must take the big energy corporations into democratic public ownership, because we can’t control what we don’t own.


Fight Racism, Sexism & All Oppression

Only the bosses profit from divisions among the working class. We need to build a united, multi-racial, multi-gendered movement of working people. Fight back against the brutal anti-trans legislation in many states and against all right-wing attacks on LGBTQ+ people. We need to organize to win legal, safe, free abortions for all who need them. End racist policing—put the police under the control of democratically-elected community boards with full power over department policy, hiring, and firing. Movements are how change happens—we need to get organized to fight for our rights. An injury to one is an injury to all!


Quality Affordable Housing & Free Healthcare for All

We face an epidemic of unaffordable housing—the rent is too damn high! We need strong rent control with no rent increases above inflation. Fund a massive expansion of publicly owned, high-quality affordable housing by taxing the rich. The private housing market has failed us—take the big real estate corporations and banks into democratic public ownership. We’re dying from unaffordable healthcare as the pharma bosses and for-profit health insurance industry make bank off our sickness. We need free, state-of-the-art, Medicare for All—owned and democratically run by working people.


No More Sellouts — We Need a New Party

The Democrats and Republicans both answer to the billionaires, that’s why working people keep getting screwed. Even so-called progressives in Congress have completely failed to fight against the establishment, and offer no solutions. We need a new, multiracial, working-class party that organizes movements and fights unambiguously for our needs. In such a party, all elected leaders would accept only the average workers’ wage, like Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant. We would need elected leaders to be fully accountable to our membership and our demands, or else be removed. We need a party that consistently opposes war and imperialism. Under capitalism, the bosses call the shots and have a dictatorship over our workplaces. We need a fundamentally different kind of society—run by and for working people, not billionaires.
