CANDIDATES

YASMIN TRUDEAU
LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT 27
SENATOR

Yasmin Trudeau began her journey in public life at our sister organization, OneAmerica, in 2008 as an intern fighting for federal immigration reform. Since then, she's continued to organize and advocate for immigrants and all people of color as a legislative staffer and through her work at the Attorney General's office. Yasmin was appointed through a democratic process to the 27th LD Senate Seat in 2021 and, as a Bengali-American, Trudeau became the first woman of color to serve as senator for the 27th Legislative District. OneAmerica Votes is proud to endorse her as she seeks her first election.

LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT 29
REPRESENTATIVE

In 2020 OneAmerica Votes interviewed and endorsed Sharlett, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, for her first run, where she came just a few votes from winning, since then, Sharlett has not stopped organizing. We've worked together to register voters in the 29th LD throughout 2021 and to pass legislation that would strengthen the WA Voting Rights Act. We know that Sharlett is going to be a fierce legislator and will work to govern with our communities once elected.

BALLOT INITIATIVES

At OneAmerica Votes we envision a Washington state where our leaders reflect our communities, where everyone can thrive, where we all have what we need to stay healthy and safe, and where our policies reflect the needs of the community. That is why we support the following ballot measures which we believe will further our vision of a more equitable Washington State that puts the needs of the community first:

  • Tukwila Minimum Wage Ballot Initiative - this initiative would raise the minimum wage for workers in the city of Tukwila. Learn more. 
  • NO to 1929 Campaign - We  must keep critical programs for our communities and ensure the rich pay their fare share through the capital gains tax! Decline to sign Initiative 1929 today.
