Why the People's Party?
Washington People's Party volunteers answer the question: “Why are you working to create a People’s Party?”

Shannon S. –  Bellingham: “I’ve been politically active my entire adult life. I registered to vote at age 18 and never looked back. In the 1980s I marched against the South African system of apartheid. I spent a summer canvassing for ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) in my hometown of Memphis, TN. Since then, I have been active in supporting Planned Parenthood. After the 2016 and 2020 Presidential elections I was done with the do-nothing duopoly. The People’s Party offers a path to break free of corporate grip on our political system and the opportunity to build an agenda that works for the 99%.”
