Exercising the right to vote is the most direct way for Blacks to engage in democracy. Yet only 68% of Blacks are registered to vote in Washington State, compared to 83% of the overall population. At a political level, policies that bolster the inclusion of Black people in politics and policymaking must become a priority. Only 1 of Washington’s 147 legislators is Black. The lack of the Black community’s access and influence in politics is evident. The release of a new study, “Creating an Equitable Future for Black Washingtonians”, uncovers this research and much more. The study also identifies multiple solutions for improving opportunities for Blacks in our state. Download the Civic Engagement excerpt from the study, and learn how you can help us start the conversation to strengthen our state’s economic and civic future through our Research and Insights Program.
