About this event

As battles over voting rights unfold across the country, community-based organizations in the Pacific Northwest are shaping policy changes that strengthen our democracy by ensuring that elected leaders reflect our diverse communities.

Join us for a dynamic discussion about how a ranked-choice voting election system could shape the journey toward a reflective democracy. During this session, we will learn how communities are driving state legislation, like the Washington Voting Rights Act, to create progress on issues such as election reform, land-use reform and environmental protection, education reform, and investments in housing and equitable development.
