The Future of the Democratic Party Goes Through This District

In her run for the House, Doglio, who supports the Green New Deal and Medicare for All, has refused all fossil fuel and corporate PAC money. Her campaign has brought together a unique coalition of supporters, binding legacy environmental and LGBT groups with youth activists and national Democrats. She’s got the broad support of labor, including the nurses, teachers, firefighters, and other unions, a constituency that doesn’t often ally itself with the environmental movement. Local tribal leadership, whom Strickland alienated as Tacoma’s mayor by backing fossil fuel infrastructure projects that they said were in violation of their treaty rights, is on Doglio’s side as well.

Beth Doglio Placed in Congressional Primary in Washington; Could Be First LGBTQ Member of Congress from the State

Mayor Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Fund, released the following statement about Doglio’s primary: "We have an opportunity to double the number of LGBTQ members of Congress in 2020 and Beth’s victory is key to making that happen. Bisexuals are severely underrepresented in elected office – with just 54 serving nationwide – so restoring bisexual representation to the U.S. Congress is critical come November. We are thrilled Beth is on-track to make history as the first openly LGBTQ member of Congress from Washington state. As importantly, she will head to Capitol Hill determined to continue her work to fight climate change and empower working families." Read More
