Vote Yes on I-135 - Social Housing for Seattle

Here's the latest update from House Our Neighbors:

We are just ONE week away from ballots being mailed out by King County and 27 days from the February 14th special election! This means we are really ramping up our efforts to get the word out about social housing, through canvasses, tables, text banks, and events.

There are canvasses happening almost daily, with several happening on Saturdays and Sundays. Sign up here to talk to voters and help Get Out the Vote!

House Our Neighbors will also be text-banking multiple times each week, with the first party happening Thursday 1/19 at Real Change at 5 PM. Join House Our Neighbors volunteers for fun, snacks, and talking to voters!

In the News...

House Our Neighbors Campaign co-chair, Tiffani McCoy, did an excellent job debating one of the writers of the opposition statement in the King County Voter Pamphlet. Their debate was featured on the Seattle Channel. Click here to check it out. Additionally, House Our Neighbors co-chair, Tye Reed, and steering committee member, Camille Gix were both interviewed on the Hacks & Wonks podcast, discussing the policy and political details of I-135.

Seattle Defends Abortion Rights!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2022 AT 1 PM

CAL ANDERSON PARK

The Republican Party and the Right are waging an all-out assault on the rights of women and LGBTQ people. The ultra-conservative majority on the Supreme Court opened the floodgates for Republican-dominated states to attack abortion rights. And they aren’t stopping there. Republicans are going after transgender rights, voting rights, workers’ rights, and more.

Just last month, 195 Republicans in the House voted against making access to contraception a federal law!  Additionally, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham introduced a NATIONAL ABORTION BAN BILL. And to top it off, the US Supreme Court’s new session starts this week, and one of the cases they’ll be ruling on addresses same-sex marriage.

We need to fight back!

To win bodily autonomy, abortion rights, and LGBTQ liberation, we need to build an independent multi-gendered, multi-racial, grassroots movement of everyday people and young people. That’s why it is so important that every organization and individual actively participates in this National Weekend of Action called by The Women’s March. We need a strong mass movement to beat back the Republicans and pressure Democrats to implement:

  • The Women’s Health Protection Act (which would legalize abortion nationwide, overriding state bans)
  • The end of the Senate filibuster
  • Expansion of the Supreme Court with pro-choice judges
  • Medicare for All, including:
    • Free, legal, safe abortions
    • Free contraception, birth control, & reproductive services
  • Affordable universal childcare & paid family leave
  • Living wages & affordable housing for all
  • Free gender-affirming healthcare

July 30th – Seattle March for #HealthcareJustice

On July 30th, the Seattle March for #HealthcareJustice will take place on the 57th anniversary of the passage of Medicare!

You are invited to attend!

Please RSVP here.

Details are still being worked out, so be sure to RSVP to stay up to date.

There are so many reasons to march for healthcare justice this year:

  • We are still deeply impacted by the COVID pandemic. A new study estimates that more than 330,000 lives could have been saved by universal healthcare.
  • We just lost Roe v. Wade – now is the time to DEMAND universal healthcare with full coverage of abortion be passed immediately to remove all financial barriers to reproductive care.
  • Medicare is currently under the attack of privatization through the REACH program – we need the Biden administration to know that we see what’s happening, and we won’t stand for it.
  • We have a serious chance at getting statewide single-payer healthcare on the ballot for Washington state!
  • The midterms are coming up soon and we need Medicare for All to be a non-negotiable electoral issue!

As with all marches, promotion and turnout are essential. Please share this action with as many people as possible and invite a friend or two to join you. We have just a few weeks before we march so this is an all-hands-on-deck moment!

This event is co-sponsored by Medicare for All EVERYWHERE, Whole Washington, the Seattle DSA Healthcare Working Group, and the Green Party of Seattle, and we expect this coalition to continue to grow. Last year’s event was an incredible success featuring fantastic speakers like Stephanie Gallardo, Nikkita Oliver, and Kshama Sawant!

We know that the community will come out again to march for healthcare justice! See you on the 30th!

Greens Score at Least 17 Victories in November Elections

 

2 new city council representatives elected in the state of Maine

WASHINGTON — Maine Green Independent Party candidates Anna Trevorrow and Scott Harriman winning city council races in Portland and Lewiston (the state’s first- and second-most populous cities, respectively) are highlights among the national party’s 17 electoral victories declared since polls closed on Tuesday.

Trevorrow, who ran while holding an elected seat on Portland’s school board, credited her win to “a strong ground-campaign, in which I had 837 conversations with voters, promoting a vision for Portland that is accessible to the working class and enacts policy through an equity lens” in a post to social media. Since 2002, Greens have won two state house, eight city council, 12 school board and two water board seats in Portland.

Harriman pledged to represent his district “proudly and to the best of my ability on the City Council” in Lewiston, where he ran on supporting fully-funded public schools, equity in education and environmental health in the district.

In Minneapolis, MN, Green candidate Samantha Pree-Stinson became the first Black Woman to be elected to the city’s Board of Estimation & Taxation. The Green Party also faced a set-back in Minneapolis, with four-term city council representative Cam Gordon not winning re-election. Gordon faced a backlash for supporting replacing the city’s police department with a Department of Public Safety and a gauntlet of challengers backed by a flood of “money from outside of the ward,” according to his campaign team.

This week’s Green wins add to 19 electoral victories from earlier in the year.

November victories in races that have been called, so far,  include:

  • Anna Trevorrow, City Council, District 1, Portland (Cumberland County) ME
  • Scott Harriman, City Council, District 2, Lewiston, ME
  • Dagmar Noll, Town Council, Willimantic (Windham County) CT
  • Joseph Wetmore, Town Board, Lansing (Tompkins County) NY
  • Megan Parks, School Committee, Lewiston Public Schools (Androscoggin County) ME
  • Matthew Reitenhauer, School Board, Brandywine Heights, Topton (Berks County) PA
  • Samantha Pree-Stinson, Board of Estimation and Taxation At-large, Minneapolis (Hennepin County) MN
  • Charlie Krich,  At-large, Board of Directors, Willimantic Taxing District, Windham (Windham County) CT
  • Cassandra Martineau, At-large, Board of Directors, Willimantic Taxing District, Windham (Windham County) CT
  • Leif Smith, Constable, Redding (Fairfield County) CT
  • Hugh Birdsall, Zoning Board of Appeals, Clinton (Middlesex County) CT
  • Emery Ng, Zoning Board of Appeals Alternate, Windham (Windham County) CT
  • Michael Westerfield, Board of Assessment Appeals, Windham (Windham County) CT
  • Jay Sweeney, Auditor, Falls Township (Wyoming County) PA
  • Abigail Hunter, Judge of Elections Ward 7, Precinct 8, Pittsburgh (Allegheny County) PA
  • Jay Ting Walker, Judge of Elections, Ward 7, District 6, Pittsburgh (Allegheny County) PA
  • Andrew Moses Yanez Oliva, Judge of Elections, Ward 15, District 6, Reading (Berks County) PA

Greens nationwide also hailed successful ballot measures to implement Ranked Choice Voting in Broomfield, Colorado; Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Westbrook, Maine.
