The Washington State initiative process allows anyone with an idea to make a law. And Gabe Meyer helped qualify two statewide initiatives: I-735 to get money out of politics and I-940 for police accountability. In this talk, Meyer shares what’s needed to qualify for less than $500,000. Direct democracy in action!
So I want to tell you that initiatives are such an opportunity in this state. We can have people power; it’s direct democracy. And those three to five years are a lot faster than things they’ve been working on in Olympia for a long time. And you can do it–you can be involved.
