Here’s to the opportunity to allow all Washington voters to enroll in non-profit healthcare coverage! Some of our community members are out taking action and organizing right now to ensure that State Initiative 1471 gets enough petition signatures to make it onto the 2023 election ballot so voters can potentially do just that.
