Donations are also helpful as we’ll soon need to order more campaign literature.

We couldn’t have made it this far without the generous contributions of time and energy by so many awesome individuals, and the support of the larger Pierce County District 5 community. We are ready for change. While I know we have many challenges ahead of us, I am honored to work side by side with such selfless leaders and community activists who put their hearts and souls into making life in Pierce County more equitable and safe. Thank you. Let’s keep going.

The following is a message from friend and supporter, Wemba-koy Okonda:

“I first met Suzanne when we worked for the University of Washington. I told her about my mission to help fellow Congolese refugees here in the United Stated and in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and my dream of starting a non-profit (Okongo). She immediately helped with outreach, research, writing, and design. She served on the board for a few years in a support role, and actively worked to encourage a board which was led by immigrants and refugees. Suzanne’s cultural sensitivity and real-world knowledge of community resources would be of great benefit to the residents of Pierce County. Please support her.”
