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).

Fuse Washington, the state's largest progressive group, is no stranger to protests outside Republican events in Bellevue. It is working with a group called Hear Our Voices coalition, which put 750 demonstrators outside Rep. Dave Reichert's Issaquah office last February.
Jim Dawson, campaign director for Fuse, a progressive group putting pressure on the legislature over budget issues, speaks to a group gathered at Parkview Early Learning Center in Spokane. The gathering was a protest over the impasse between the Washington state Senate and House on the budget, especially concerning education and social services.
The forum was organized by progressive activist groups including Indivisible Tacoma, Fuse Washington, and Black Moms Rock. Candidates also outlined their positions on rising rents, gentrification and a federal detention center for immigrants facing deportation that is located in Tacoma.
