Organization Overview

Win|Win is a network of progressive organizations coming together to advance racial, social, and economic justice across Washington through civic and political engagement. Our partners work together to build a new political landscape that inspires people; where individuals engage because they see themselves and their values reflected across our democracy. Win|Win provides our network with strategic coordination, data and research, and individual technical assistance to increase our ability to create change together. 

We are a small but passionate team that takes pride in building an organizational culture rooted in trust, collaboration, and learning, with an ongoing commitment to becoming a transformative, anti-racist organization. We are committed to developing individual and team skills, sharing leadership, open communication, and a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to creating a healthy virtual work environment during the COVID19 pandemic and are set up as a fully remote office. 

It’s our collective duty to end the systemic, relentless disenfranchisement targeting communities of color, young adults, LGBTQ people, and single women. That’s why we work year-round to create a more accessible, inclusive, and representative democracy.
