  Program
Welcome to 2022, yet another critical election year. Our member program will include presentations on:

Coordinated Campaign
What is a coordinated campaign? Why do we have one? What do we do with it in Jefferson County? What should we avoid doing? Rebecca Duran, our Field Organizer from the Washington State Democratic Party will explain. She will describe how the coordinated campaign can help re-elect our local elected Democrats, and how we participate.

Washington State Taxes
Last year, Washington implemented a capital gains tax! That was one important step toward making Washington’s taxes more equitable. This year? We have to defend the capital gains tax in court, and push forward with taxes on ultra-high earners in Washington. We also need to reform the inheritance tax. Treasure Mackley from Invest in WA Now will provide the status of these bills, and let us know how we can help in this short legislative session.

Indivisible’s WITH Campaign
Washington has an important US Senate campaign and we want to re-elect Senator Patty Murray. Other states, though, have Senate seats that are more at risk than ours. We know that many of our members want to help in those states, and Indivisible has a program for that. “Washington Indivisible Teams Helping” (WITH) has already started their work to defend Senator Mark Kelly’s seat in Arizona and to flip the Senate seat in Pennsylvania. Learn about what is happening, and how you can help.

Here is a program description:            Indivisible WITH Program   Member Meeting
