Vote Jay Inslee for Governor
OneAmerica Votes is excited to recommend Jay Inslee for Governor in 2016. We endorsed Governor Inslee in 2012 and have not been disappointed, as he has demonstrated a clear commitment to our communities during his first four years. He has become a champion on a number of important issues to immigrants and refugees, including:
- The Washington Voting Rights Act (WVRA) to address the lack of representation for communities of color across all levels of elected office in Washington
- A climate change policy that reduces pollution and invests in the communities most impacted by the effects of climate change, particularly communities of color and immigrant and refugee communities
- The Washington State Dream Act, which he signed into law in 2014, something he calls one of the proudest achievements of his first term
During his candidate interview earlier this year with 25 of our leaders from across the state, Governor Inslee made commitments to continue working toward passing the WVRA, invest in more dual language programming to ensure that our schools meet the needs of immigrant students and lift up students’ native language and culture as a strength, and do his part to protect our communities from injustice at the hands of polluters and the broken immigration system. For those reasons, all 25 leaders recommended his endorsement for Governor.
The next four years will be critical to shaping the future for our children and our state and we trust Governor Inslee with that responsibility and will work to ensure he is accountable to his commitments.
Vote Jay Inslee for Governor!
