Ballots are coming in and our ballot-chasing team is tracking them. We will be contacting Democratic voters who have submitted their ballots but need to fix something with it before it can be counted. The most common problems are missing signatures or signatures that may have evolved since previous elections.

OPEN TO STUDENTS, STAFF, FACULTY & TRI-CITIES COMMUNITY
Robert Bauman and Robert Franklin, both History faculty at Washington State University, Tri-Cities, will give a presentation on the history of African-American activism in the Tri-Cities from the 1940s-1970s. The presentation will highlight efforts to end racial segregation in the Tri-Cities, including civil rights marches in Kennewick and Pasco in the 1960s and 1970s. The presentation is based on material from their forthcoming book, Echoes of Exclusion and Resistance: Voices from the Hanford Region, to be published by WSU Press in November.

Where: Walla Walla, Sidewalk in front of Land Title Plaza – 33 E Main St.
One of Breonna Taylor’s killers, Brett Hankison, has been indicted for three counts of 1st degree wanton endangerment, UNRELATED to her murder. This is NOT justice. This is not taking responsibility. This is not what we asked for. We will come together Sunday at 1:00 p.m. in front of Land Title Plaza to call for the protection and celebration of Black women, Black trans women and Black girls everywhere. Masks required. Sidewalk chalk provided. Let’s make downtown Walla Walla’s sidewalks beautiful with supportive messages to and for Black women and a call for justice for Breonna and Black women affected by systemic racism everywhere.
Join Rogue Lobster for a Facebook Live concert. The event is free so please plan to tune in to enjoy some bluegrass music.

Hello Benton and Franklin County Whole Washington supporters!
Whole Washington is gearing up for a 2021 ballot initiative to establish universal healthcare in Washington state! We want to raise awareness and let EVERYONE know about Whole Washington. You can help the effort by joining a sign event rally on September 26 at 1 PM at John Dam Plaza. Meet in the parking lot behind the HAPO stage on Knight St.
Our goal is to raise awareness about Whole Washington and universal healthcare by holding signs, handing out literature to educate the public, signing up supporters and volunteers, and start having existing volunteers and supporters meet each other. There will be some signs there, but please feel free to make your own. Please RSVP and show up with your mask.
If you want to help collect signatures during our 2021 ballot initiative campaign, please sign-up below. Our goal is to reach at least 1000 volunteers statewide. Having 1000 volunteers will reduce the number of signatures required per volunteer to a doable 325 signature each. https://wholewashington.org/volunteer/
Also, if you support what Whole Washington is doing, please consider donating $10 a month by becoming a recurring donor. Recurring donations lets us strategize for the future. This is a grassroots campaign funded by the people. We don’t plan on winning by out-raising health insurance lobbyists and their allies. We plan on winning by the creativity, passion, and work ethic of our volunteers and supporters. A modest funding base will tremendously help support our volunteer efforts. Our goal is to have at least 1000 people donate $10 a month. You can donate and become a recurring donor at the link: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/whole-washington-1
With a virus killing and harming so many and climate change causing short term and life-long term health issues, universal healthcare is needed more than ever. Hope you can make it to our event. Stay safe and hope all is well.

Hello friends, family, and allies! After hosting our first ally panel on September 1st we have gotten rave reviews and more folks wanting and willing to connect, participate, and use their voice to continue to draw attention and keep motivation and focus on the movement. Tri-Cities Future Equalizers (TCFE) will be hosting regular ally panels- reaching out to hear from specific groups- Mothers, Fathers, Teens, Interracial couples, Mixed kids, Queer family, Teachers and much more. TCFE acknowledges the time and energy that everyone is putting forth for the sake of the movement and the toll that this kind of work can take… We believe that there is a space and a place for everyone with a pure heart and an open mind who wants to learn and wants to help make it right.. We respect and encourage everyone’s individual talents and skills to join forces and join in the fight. This is a safe space where disrespect will not be tolerated and where differences will be honored instead of diluted. We hope to see you on Tuesday September 22nd at 6:30 pm. This will be an online event- please follow posts to learn about our panelists, and to get updated information about how to attend/view the event. We will be using Zoom and Facebook so check back on the event for instructions to watch and participate. Please download ZOOM before the event in case we decide on a massive Zoom call with everyone on it. This is a public event. Please save the date and share with others who may be interested. We would also love any feedback on who you would like to see on a panel and/or what kind of questions you would like to be asked. We are in this together and stronger than ever. Let’s change the world!!! See you September 22 at 6:30pm!
