#TakeAction – February 6, 2020
There are less than 5 weeks until Washington’s presidential primary. #TakeAction this weekend and every weekend until March 10 to support your candidate. Don’t forget to call your Senator on the Rules Committee to ask them to prevent foreign corporations from participating in WA state elections:
🔶 Join a Canvass to Get out the Vote for the Presidential Primary
🔶 Prevent foreign corporations from participating in Washington state elections
1. Washington’s new Presidential Primary is March 10th, and volunteers are needed to canvass every weekend to explain our new nominating system and get out the vote.

2. Support SB 6152 – Concerning certification of the level of foreign national ownership for corporations that participate in Washington state elections
Date: Ongoing. We need the Senate Rules committee to approve this bill and send it to the House floor for a vote.
Action: Call your WA Senator on the Rules Committee: Randi Becker (LD2); Bob Hasegawa (LD11); Karen Keiser (LD33). Urge them to vote to pass SB 6152 – Concerning certification of the level of foreign national ownership for corporations that participate in Washington state elections out of the Rules Committee for a vote on the Senate floor.
Background: This bill would ensure that any corporation donating to a political campaign or candidate must have ownership made up of less than 50% foreign nationals. This would set limits on both corporate and foreign influence on WA state elections, giving power back to the people.
