Reject Referendum Measure 88!
Stop Divisive I-1000 by Rejecting R-88
The Secretary of State Certified Referendum Measure 88 (R-88) for the November ballot on Wednesday, August 7th, 2019. We set a record for number of signatures backing a referendum measure in WA history. The public vote on R-88 will decide whether I-1000 becomes law. I-1000 is divisive. Reject R-88!.
I-1000 divides us further. It separates us out by race and judges us by race. Please join our campaign to Reject R-88, Stop I-1000 .
Despite strong oppositions, lawmakers in Olympia rushed to pass Initiative 1000 (I-1000) in the last few hours of this legislative session. I-1000 can be summed up in one sentence: It would abolish the standard of equality for all, regardless of races, sex, color, age, ethnicity, or national origin, as required by Washington Civil Rights Act, and replace it with a system that uses different rules for people of different races.
Referendum Measure 88 has been filed with the Secretary of State to put that choice where it really belongs – in the hands of the people. R-88 is managed by Let People Vote, a PDC registered campaign committee. For more information, please call 425-588-8011.
Please sign up to help qualify Referendum Measure 88 and let people vote on I-1000 (in the form of Referendum Measure 88) in November’s ballot.
Initiative 1000 seeks to repeal Washington Civil Rights Act (I-200) and was enacted by the Legislature on the last day of the session in order to deny a public vote on the matter. Voter approved I-200 by more than 58% of votes in 1998. Why shouldn’t voters be allowed to decide whether to change it?
We have filed Referendum Measure 88 to put I-1000 on the November ballot. We have till 7/27 to collect 170,000 voters’ signatures and qualify it for the November ballot. The public will have the opportunity to debate if racial preferential treatment has a place in today’s society.
