With so much news here in the state over the last few weeks, from Governor Inslee’s phased reopening to the lockdown protests in Olympia and even a possible special session in the legislature to deal with the budget shortfall, we convene our Week in Review panel to break it all down.
Then, we are joined by the chair of the King County Democrats, Shasti Conrad, to talk about why you should become a precinct committee officer, or PCO, in time for this year’s presidential election. The filing deadline is coming up.
And finally, we talk with Tahmina Watson, co-founder of the Washington Immigrant Defense Network, to hear about how the pandemic has impacted our immigrant community in the state, and about how you can help.
