Throughout Nikkita Oliver’s gripping run for mayor, she emphasized that the campaign was about much more than just her candidacy; it was about building a movement. The Seattle Peoples Party is a new type of political organization in this city, one that works to center those most vulnerable and uplift from the margins. This work requires infrastructure to support it. And so, we welcome you to the gleaming, brand new website of the Seattle Peoples Party – just one piece of this infrastructure! We hope that this website with serve to increase transparency, consolidate information, and offer a point of entry for you, the people of Seattle. Here you can find a short introduction to what the website has to offer.
The two primary goals of this website are to connect visitors to what the Seattle Peoples Party (SPP) is about and how to get involved. General information about SPP can be found under the “About Us” tab. This is especially useful for those who may only know about the party vis-à-vis Nikkita Oliver, or who wonder what it means to be a political organization participating in but not limited to electoral politics. The “Issues” and “Campaigns” tabs offer more thorough information regarding particular positions. Many of these positions mirror those taken by the Seattle Peoples Party during the mayoral campaign, but the website offers an updated take reflecting both how the party has matured as well as more recent events. Under the “News” tab viewers can find content produced by SPP (like this blog post!) as well as news about SPP from external media sources.
This website is not only meant to inform, but also engage! Look under the “Take Action” tab to find out about upcoming events, including both those organized by SPP as well as other grassroots organizations around Seattle. Feeling overwhelmed, but still want to be involved? There are two very VERY easy ways to do so. First, subscribe! Get email updates about SPP to stay up-to-date with news, events, and future campaigns. Second, donate! (This one is really important). As SPP grows, working to make Seattle a more just and equitable city, it needs dollars to do so. Luckily, this website offers a handy way for you to pitch in! Links to donate and subscribe can be found by scrolling down to the bottom or on the Home page. Subscribers will be the first to hear about SPP’s new membership structure which we will roll out in the coming weeks. We are excited for you to join us as the Seattle Peoples Party continues to grow!
