Victory! We defeated I-1515
This year, opponents of transgender equality pushed I-1515, an initiative seeking to repeal our state’s non-discrimination protections that for 10 years have helped ensure our transgender family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors are treated fairly and equally under the law. But together we united an impressive coalition of transgender Washingtonians, businesses, law enforcement, faith leaders, and women's groups, and together we were able to prevent I-1515 backers from collecting the minimum number of signatures required—and defeat this shameful initiative before it could even go to the ballot. In Washington, fairness and equality will always prevail. Learn More
