Representative Marilyn Strickland

Representative Marilyn Strickland (WA-10) is the first Black person to represent the state of Washington at the federal level and one of the first three Korean-American women ever elected to Congress.


As mayor of Tacoma, Strickland championed marriage equality, transgender rights, access to abortion, and paid family and sick leave. She has described reproductive rights as an issue of both healthcare and economic empowerment.

Her Congressional campaign — and now, part of the work she’ll be doing in Congress– included a promise to be a strong voice for the most vulnerable members of our community, and a commitment to fighting attempts to restrict reproductive freedom.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
