SWCUC is a grassroots, social justice, and community-based non-profit organization that came together to support BIPOC and marginalized community members to dismantle systems of oppression and support Southwest Washington community members in strength and solidarity through civic engagement.
BIPOC and marginalized community with the POWER to hold our local and regional institutions accountable to its constituents. BIPOC and marginalized community who recognize their innate leadership abilities. BIPOC and marginalized community with working relationships that will lead to institutional and political support and leadership roles for our vulnerable community members.
From over-incarceration to police brutality, the U.S. law enforcement system actively harms BIPOC and other marginalized communities. We demand our local governments defund and demilitarize the police and put that money toward community instead.
We fight for environmental justice and a just transition from an exploitive, extractive economy to a sustainable one that supports all people to thrive.
With new demographic information from the 2020 Census, Washington is redrawing election maps. SW Washington BIPOC communities deserve a voice in this process.
