SEAMEC has been interviewing, researching, and rating candidates for public office for 42 years, we have never before experienced the dangerous extremist political turmoil happening across our nation!
Since 1977, SEAMEC has been at the center of our long quest for LGBTQ Equality in Washington State, we have fought and won significant legal protections from discrimination as well as marriage equality. These rights we have won cannot be taken for granted, given the rising tide of visible hateful nationalism and violence happening here in our own state, even within our neighborhoods.
SEAMEC’s on-going electioneering work is especially critical in this volatile political climate, as we embark on a long political fight to protect and defend our hard-earned rights for LGBTQ equality!
The continued existence of SEAMEC cannot be taken for granted either, as our resources, both human and financial are dwindling. We are in great need of new energetic volunteers and leaders who want to defend and protect LGBTQ equality through political activism, as well as increased financial support from our local LGBT Community if SEAMEC is to continue its mission of informing our community of the positions of candidates in the critical upcoming 2020 election cycle.
We rely EXCLUSIVELY on your donations and volunteer efforts to make these election ratings possible! Please help us carry on with this important work!
As a SEAMEC supporter, you can be proud of the fact that SEAMEC accomplishes so much with such limited resources. We operate on a budget of less than $10,000.00 each year. We don’t have paid staff or a plush office, yet with your assistance, we can continue to make a big impact.
A donation of $25.00 maintains our website for a month, $41.25 buys 75 stamps to mail our election ratings; $100 pays for candidate interview packets; $102 pays for a week of our office rent; $250 buys 500 candidate rating sheets to distribute to the community before elections; and $408 pays for our office for a whole month!
PLEASE MAKE A GENEROUS DONATION OR VOLUNTEER TODAY!
There are multiple available SEAMEC Steering Committee leadership positions – for both one year and two-year term commitments.
