Protect our Elections!

While most of the people reading this already questioned Trump’s loyalties, it was not until his performance in Helsinki that the question was first considered legitimate for a substantial portion of our country. Where do Trump’s loyalties truly lie? We have an opportunity that can’t be missed with just over 100 days till the mid-terms. Senator Rubio and Senator Van Hollen introduced the DETER Act in April and we may have some bipartisan support after Helsinki.

The DETER Act would impose sanctions against foreign actors who interfere in U.S. elections. It would target countries that buy advertisements to impact an election, use social and traditional media to disseminate incorrect information to voters, or release or alter election and campaign infrastructure, among other things.

Urge our Senators not to miss this opportunity!

Call Sen. Patty Murray: (202) 224-2621 or (206) 553-5545
Call Sen. Maria Cantwell: (202) 224-3441 or (206) 220-6400

Sample Script:

Hi, my name is {NAME} and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP}. I’m calling to urge the Senator to co-sponsor The DETER Act. We may not get a better opportunity to protect our democracy before our elections.

Vigil for Safe Jobs and Safe Communities

Northeast Seattle neighborhoods are undergoing rapid turnover and development, without sufficient and meaningful input from local communities and advocates.

Seattle Workers for Justice is supporting local neighbors' and small business concerns about public involvement processes and safety concerns like crosswalks, and of workers on several new developments who have experienced bullying on the job, and have worked on projects without adequate training, safety equipment, or safety training.

The majority of the workers in the industry are vulnerable to employer bullying and threats, including outright racist and anti-immigrant discrimination.
