Initiative 1000 seeks to repeal Washington Civil Rights Act (I-200) and was enacted by the Legislature on the last day of the session in order to deny a public vote on the matter. Referendum Measure 88 has been filed to put that choice where it really belongs – in the hands of the people. Referendum Measure 88 has the exact same language of I-1000. By qualifying Referendum Measure 88 for the November ballot, we are putting I-1000 in the form of Referendum Measure 88 on the ballot, and let people vote on I-1000 (again, in the form of Referendum 88) in November.
I-1000 can be summed up in one sentence: It would abolish the standard of equality for all, regardless of race, as required by I-200, and replace it with a system that uses different rules for people of different races.
We have till July 27th, to collect 170K signatures (129,811 valid, non-duplicated signature required) and qualify Referendum Measure 88 for the ballot. We need all the help we can get. If you are willing to participate in the fight to give voters the chance to vote on I-1000, please sign up using the form below and we’ll contact you with details. Thanks!
