In the Press

This legislative session, Mindy Woods was featured in Seattle Times for her advocacy on banning source of income discrimination. Thanks to Mindy and other RAP leaders like her, it is now illegal for landlords to deny people based on how they pay their rent!

Another RAP leader, Toya Thomas, was featured in The Stranger also for her amazing advocacy on banning source of income discrimination.

Lisa Sawyer, a Real Change vender, wrote a piece for Real Change about the need to have Automatic Voter Registration. Guess what? Thanks to other advocates like Lisa, Washington state now has Automatic Voter Registration, which reduces the barriers people face to be civically engaged.

Last year, Kristina Sawyckyi was featured in the Urbanist.  Thank you for telling your story, Kristina.
