Washington Won't Discriminate!

Screen Shot 2016-05-17 at 10.50.05 AMAs employers of thousands of Washingtonians in every region of the state, the businesses supporting Washing Won’t Discriminate believe that repealing 10-year old nondiscrimination protections is not only wrong but also bad for business. But this initiative goes even further. It imposes discriminatory restroom restrictions in schools and take away the ability of cities and counties o create their own laws that welcome all Washingtonians. Successful businesses across the nation, including 75 percent of Fortune 500 companies, have nondiscrimination policies that explicitly cover gender identity. To turn back these protections now goes against our values of treating everyone fairly and equally.

I-1515’s Unintended Economic Consequences

I-1515 could seriously damage Washington’s growing economy and will cost our schools and state programs billions in federal funding. It creates more red tape for businesses and puts local governments and schools at risk for costly lawsuits. I-1515 makes law enforcement’s job even tougher, costs taxpayers and drives away new economic development.
