No Discrimination Spokane

Spokane is a great place to live and all our neighbors should be treated fairly.

No Discrimination Spokane is a broad coalition of organizations & individuals leading the campaign to say no to the right-wing anti-immigrant profiling initiative and to extremists using their racist beliefs to make Spokane less fair and less safe.

In November 2017, we’ll say NO to the extreme right wing’s racist initiative to legalize biased profiling that will divide our community, waste our limited public safety dollars, and make vulnerable crime victims less likely to seek police help. Stand for justice, common sense, and fairness!

We won’t treat people differently based on the color of their skin. Our Spokane community is committed to treating all people with respect and dignity. We won’t let extremists use hate, fear, and racist prejudice to pit us against each other and divide our community! As a nation of values, together we build a just society when we stand up to racism and oppression to expand justice and opportunity for all. Spokane works best when it works for all of us who live, work, and raise our families in this community.
