I-1000 is an attempt to stop ‘preferential treatment’ by bringing back different rules for different races in government contracting and hiring – eventually extending to Colleges and Universities when students apply. I-1000 seeks to repeal voter approved state initiative I-200. I-200 forbids the government from discriminating on the basis of sex or race in public education, contracting and employment.
WA Legislature enacted I-1000 on the last day of the session in order to deny a public vote on the matter. Referendum Measure 88 (R-88) has been filed with the Secretary of State on April 29th.
“Let People Vote” PAC has been formed to drive the Referendum Measure 88 campaign. The campaign has successfully submitted 213,628 signatures, much more than required 129,811 signatures, to qualify R-88 for the November campaign. Now the real fight has started. We need to educate voters that to support Equality for All, they need to Reject I-1000 on R-88 in November.
The campaign needs money to run ads, to put up yard signs. To support the campaign going forward, please donate online or by following the following instructions:
