Op-Ed: You walked — now run
Vandana and and fellow Representative Judy Clibborn (41st District) write in the Bellevue Reporter:
Across Washington state, thousands of women, families of diverse communities and members of the LGBTQ community, recently took to the streets in a peaceful protest to stand up for equality, civil and women’s rights and religious freedom.
It was an inspiring day, but one we can all agree must be followed by longer-term action.
As the female majority of the Democratic Caucus in the Washington state House of Representatives — one of only four women-dominated chambers in the country — we have a request of you: run for public office.
