Civic & Political Engagement

We love to engage people in politics and elections. We believe that we promote democracy by ensuring that everyone's voice is at the decision-making table and that everyone has access to information about what those decisions mean. We build power when we make decision together based on shared values and invite others to join us. Will you join us?

I am an OAV member because they get me involved in elections. I even got to interview Jay Inslee when he was running for Governor.
