”Politicians on both sides of the aisle pay lip service to the issues, but continue to pump out legislation that compound problems not ease them. ” - Dorothy Gasque

- Medicare for all

- Decrease tax cuts on corporations stealing from working class people
- Criminal justice reform and combat institutional racism
- Environmental protection and a renewable energy economy
- Tuition-free public education
- Protecting the Bill of Rights for everyone
Dorothy Gasque is a third generation public servant. She served eight years in the U.S. Army. In 2005 she deployed to Iraq, with an otherwise all male combat unit. Due to her rank as a non-commissioned officer, she was often asked to lead combat patrols, organize traffic checkpoints, and manage base security. In the spring of 2015, Dorothy joined in the efforts and began working to build the progressive movement in Clark County. She worked tirelessly to register voters and inform them about the caucus process. In her role as a community organizer, she developed and encouraged emergent leaders throughout the county to build a cohesive network of dynamic organizers and volunteers. As assistant director of the non-profit startup Concerned Humans Against Poverty (CHAP) Dorothy has organized dozens of volunteers that are making immediate positive changes for our houseless neighbors. Dorothy works to support other veterans and is the First Vice Chair of Washington State Veterans and Military Families Caucus.
”I saw a nation that jumps into conflict without compelling reason, and wastes precious resources and life in the process. While we waste trillions of dollars and human life on ill-conceived wars, our quality of life in the United States is drastically declining.” - Dorothy Gasque
