About / Statement of Purpose

Housing & Homelessness is a Platform Issue. The following statement on social justice is quoted from Jefferson County Democrats platform:

SOCIAL JUSTICE – We recognize our community is diminished by social and economic injustice. The growing gap between rich and poor, the lack of decent and affordable housing, the acknowledged inequity of Washington State’s regressive tax system and the uneven application of laws all erect barriers to our security and success.
