As a woman of color who was raised in an immigrant community by one immigrant parent and one American-born parent who was – nonetheless – imprisoned with her family because of racist xenophobia, Representative Sharon Tomiko Santos knows and has seen first hand how policies affect immigrants and refugees.
She has worked closely with these communities throughout the state to protect them against the current climate of fear-mongering and race-baiting, including from the actions of our own state government offices. As a veteran member of color in the Legislature, she led the efforts in the House to demand accountability for and to ameliorate the unconscionable release of personal information by the state Department of Licensing which, as we now can confirm, has led to detentions and will eventually lead to deportations of Washington state residents.
She invites you to join her on Wednesday August 8, the day after the primary, to celebrate our Immigrant and Refugee Communities at the Donnie Chin Community Room at Hirabayashi Place.
This fundraiser will help ensure Rep. Santos to go back to Olympia and continue advocating for the immigrant community by introducing legislation that will create equitable access to education, healthcare, and basic human rights.
