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.
