TACOMA, WADespite the pandemic lockdown, the Rebecca Parson 2020 campaign has made over 500,000 calls across Washington’s 6th District — thanks to hundreds of volunteers who have joined daily, virtually-organized phone banking shifts.

The more than 531,000 calls are broken down by county as follows:

  • Clallam: 45,313
  • Grays Harbor: 31,712
  • Jefferson: 37,422
  • Kitsap: 195,696
  • Mason: 21,904
  • Pierce: 202,491

“For a grassroots campaign to make over 500,000 calls to voters is remarkable,” said Parson. “It shows the strength of our movement and how ready for change the people of the 6th District are.

“While we would love to be able to go door-to-door, our incredible staff and volunteers aren’t letting the lockdown stop them for one minute. We are speaking directly with families about their needs and the change that our campaign can bring.”

In addition, Parson announced a flurry of new endorsements:

  • National Women’s Political Caucus
  • The Urbanist
  • Immaculate Ferreria, family support specialist and former State Senate candidate
  • Supreet Kaur, former National Political Project Manager and National AAPI Organizer for Bernie Sanders
  • Patricia Sully, Tacoma civil rights attorney
  • Barb Church, Tacoma environmental and racial justice activist

Rebecca Parson is a Tacoma Area Disabilities Commissioner, tenants’ rights organizer, and small business owner. She will be the first LGBTQ+ woman to hold Congressional office in Washington state.

District 6 extends from Tacoma to Aberdeen and Neah Bay to Bainbridge Island. Learn more about Parson’s campaign at
