Women’s History Month in Pierce County

Posted On: March 31, 2021

A Conversation with Speaker Jinkins

Inspired by Women’s History Month, we spoke with Speaker Laurie Jinkins who made history last year when she became Washington state’s first woman and first out lesbian Speaker of the House. She represents the 27th Legislative District in Pierce County.

Tune in to hear her favorite places to eat in the City of Tacoma and how love motivated her to become involved in LGBT+ politics as well as encouraging words on how to remain resilient in justice work!

A major thanks to Speaker Jinkins for sharing your time and wisdom so generously. Special thanks to Paul Mulliganiel for your time editing and compiling the audio file.
