Virtual Conversation | Recapping the 2021 Session: Legislative Republicans, May 18, 2021 Register

How increasing diversity is changing Olympia

The changing demographics of the legislative community are increasingly reflective of the changing composition of Washington State’s communities. Around the country and in Washington State, these changes have begun to reconfigure political coalitions and in turn, reshape legislative priorities. 

How might we interpret these changes in a way that is nuanced, thoughtful, and reflective of how life and politics evolve in response to demographic change?

For answers to this question, look no further than the 2019 Re-Wire Policy Conference.

Karen Besserman (Executive Director, Emerge Washington), Luis Moscoso (Vice Chair, Washington State Democratic Latino Caucus), Bernal Baca (Interim Executive Director, Centro Latino Tacoma) will explore the impact of demographic changes and highlight the differences they are making in state policy making. Erin Jones of Erin Jones LLC will moderate.   

This panel is scheduled for 9:30 AM at the Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center.
