Mission and Values

 

Our Mission

The 32nd Legislative District Democrats work to build vibrant and tolerant societies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.

We seek to strengthen the rule of law; respect for human rights, minorities, and a diversity of opinions; democratically elected governments; and a civil society that helps keep government power in check.

We help to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights.

We implement initiatives to advance justice, education, public health, and independent media.

We build alliances across borders on issues such as corruption and freedom of information.

Working in every part of our district, we place a high priority on protecting and improving the lives of people in marginalized communities.

Our Values

We believe in fundamental human rights, dignity, and the rule of law.

We believe in a society where all people are free to participate fully in civic, economic, and cultural life.

We believe in addressing inequalities that cut across multiple lines, including race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and citizenship.

We believe in holding those in power accountable for their actions and in increasing the power of historically excluded groups.

We believe in helping people and communities press for change on their own behalf.

We believe in responding quickly and flexibly to the most critical threats to open society.

We believe in taking on controversial issues and supporting bold, innovative solutions that address root causes and advance systemic change.

We believe in encouraging critical debate and respecting diverse opinions.

**Thanks to the Open Society for sharing

Attention PCO’s!!

Ballots will be mailed around July 15, 2016 . Primary election day is August 2, 2016. I like to walk my precinct and give people the sample ballots around July 13 th because some citizens mail in their ballot the minute they get them in the US mail.

If you plan to walk your precinct and distribute our Sample Ballots here’s what to do:

1) Pick up your precinct walking list and sample ballots at the 32 nd LD picnic on Sat.

July 9 th , 11:30-3:30pm at Lynndale Park, Lynnwood Washington.

2) If you want to print your own walking list, and you know how to use

Votebuilder.com, then come to the picnic and just pick up the sample ballots.

3) If you can’t make it to the picnic, then pick up your walking list and sample ballots on Wed. July 13 th , 6-8pm at the Eckert home: 6228 183Pl.S.W. Lynnwood,
