Can you imagine a Washington with healthy orcas, clean air and water, thriving communities, an equitable clean energy economy, and working forests with big, old trees? We can. That’s the vision for Washington’s future that we’re working towards, together.

Join us at WEC’s annual Gala in March to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished together over the past year.



We invite you to purchase your tickets today. If you can’t attend but would like to make a special gift to power our work in 2019 and beyond, you can do that here.

Washington State Representative Debra Lekanoff

First and foremost, I’m a Mom and have the honor being a community member of this beautiful place we all call home. I’ve served as the Swinomish Governmental Affairs Director for the past 16 years, and for six years I served as Chair of an Alaska Native Village Corporation. My career has provided the opportunity to engage on vast issues and layers of government at international, federal, state, and tribal levels and to work towards our shared vision of clean water for our families and our fish and wildlife. As a state Representative, I am working to protect our natural resources, provide a high-quality education for our children, and to strengthen financial support and stability for our community.
