Endorsed Ballot Initiatives 2020

We endorse positions on ballot initiatives that either move a progressive agenda forward or block initiatives harmful to the interests of the majority or marginalized groups. Please take the time to understand ballot initiatives before voting. Where we do not make a recommendation, it is generally because there are complex issues and multiple viewpoints, such that we did not have sufficient votes one way or the other, or we didn’t have resources to consider.
