Washington’s Secretary of State, Kim Wyman, certified that opponents of I-1000, which remedies discrimination in public education, employment, and contracting and was passed by the Legislature this session, submitted a sufficient number of signatures to force the measure onto the ballot in November. Michele Storms, Executive Director of the ACLU of Washington had this reaction:
“Ending discrimination has been central to the ACLU’s mission since our inception almost a century ago. The state’s economy and its communities benefit when all members of society have access to employment and education opportunities without discrimination. We are proud to support I-1000 and are confident voters will uphold Washington’s values of fairness and equity this November.”
