|Dear Greens and allies,
There’s a lot of negative campaigning going on this election. These are troubled times. Nevertheless, we on the voting Left believe that voting is always about representing yourself with your vote, not voting the way the majority are currently motivated. History has a long record of a conscientious minority standing up for what’s right and challenging the status quo, against odds. We know our planet is in a desperate state, and ecosocialism is about making that the top issue. Our rights are eroded by both faces of the duopoly with each legislative session, and the duopoly parties are doing it.
Help us change the statewide conversation to what we want instead of what we fear. A conversation is not one-sided—we have to reach out and give people a chance to join the movement for people, planet and peace over profit. We at the Washington Green Party campaign for Howie Hawkins & Angela Walker have come up with events that respect your civic duty to social distance. We want everyone to be safe and healthy while we stand up for the country we want, both to live in and be proud of.
