During the 2018 election, Forward Together led a large-scale deep canvass component to the No on Measures 105 & 106 campaigns. We utilized strategies to engage and empower our constituencies on the voting process – including women of color, LGBTQ and gender non-conforming people of color, indigenous people, and immigrants. We were the first women of color-led organization to join the executive committee of No Cuts to Care, and we supported the partners around the table for the No on 105 campaign.
