  We believe the purpose of government is to act on behalf of the public good, to create and execute policies and laws that promote and protect human rights equally, to protect our shared environment, to promote justice, safety, and security, and to oversee the equitable distribution of resources, affording all citizens the opportunity to attain their highest level of social, cultural, economic, mental, and physical wellbeing.

AGRICULTURE AND FOOD SUPPLY

As stewards of Washington's heritage, we cherish our land and family farms and oppose the concentration of food production in the hands of a few corporations. We believe in the fundamental right for all people to have access to safe, sufficient and healthy food. We support environmentally responsible agriculture, crop diversification and funding of local soil conservation districts. 

 

HEALTHCARE

We believe all people have a right to accessible, affordable, quality healthcare, and the benefits of continued medical research.

ENVIRONMENT

As temporary stewards of our natural resources, we support the development of policies and laws promoting sound energy practices permanently protecting our environment and addressing the problem of climate change 

HUMAN SERVICES

Sufficient funding for social services, dependent care and food assistance programs is essential to achieving the goal of safety, security and wellbeing for all.

LABOR AND WORKER RIGHTS

We believe a healthy American economy depends on the dignity with which the American worker is treated. We affirm the right of all workers to bargain collectively and we support organized labor. A sustainable economy and growth depend on a positive climate for small business development.
