League of Women Voters of Washington takes position - Decline to Sign I-1552

LWVWA urges Decline to Sign I-1552

The League of Women Voters of Washington is strongly recommending that voters NOT sign I-1552, an initiative that will rollback non-discrimination protections for transgender Washingtonians.

“We usually wait until initiatives make it to the ballot before making a recommendation,” says Kathy Sakahara, Vice President of the League of Women Voters of Washington. “But initiatives and bills like I-1552 increase dangerous rhetoric which can lead to hate crimes and violence against LGBTQ people. Regardless of whether it’s approved by voters, the anti-transgender fear mongering accompanying I-1552 can lead to real harm, especially to transgender and gender non-conforming people students who already face higher rates of bullying, harassment and violence.”

See our complete statement here.  Find more information about No on I-1522 here.

We marched peacefully to show our support for the protection of voting rights, health care, the environment, women's rights, and civil rights.
