Fuse Washington focuses on getting the issues our members care about - not our name - into newspaper articles, televisions coverage and blog updates. In this section you will find press releases, links to articles about the issues Fuse and its members are working hard on and a little shameless self-promotion (coverage of Fuse as an organization rather than its campaigns).

About 25 people delivered children's shoes to Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodger's office on Thursday afternoon. The rally was called 'Walk a mile in our shoes' and organizers with Fuse Washington are calling on the Eastern Washington Representative to propose legislation to end the Trump administration’s 'zero-tolerance' immigration policy.
The protest was a response McMorris Rodgers’ opposition to previous federal rules regarding net neutrality that protesters argued ensure equal access to the internet. The repeal of those rules, say protesters, will allow internet service providers to block websites or apps, control the speed of certain websites and create a faster version of the internet for people who pay more, and a slower version for those who don’t.
Fuse Washington, an advocacy organization, hosted the protest, which drew about 25 people.

Community members rallied in the rain on the Auburn City Hall Plaza last Saturday to oppose what they describe as a Congressional Republicans’ “tax giveaway” to the rich.
