To truly lead from community, we prioritize building a team of people who are directly impacted by the issues we work on. We are people of color, women, LGBTQ, from different economic backgrounds, and people of all abilities.
Sarah Stockholm, Community Organizer
Sarah Stockholm was raised in rural South Dakota on Lakota territories where she started anti-racist organizing in a multi-racial coalition. Her working class values and love for the movement keep her practice of popular education and organizing grounded, yet visionary. She started working with Washington CAN in 2019 to build community power for tenant protections and eviction reform. She also works with Showing Up for Racial Justice, a regional and national network committed to undermining white support for white supremacy and bringing in more people for a strong multi-racial, cross-class racial justice movement.
Serena Evans-Satoran, Finance Director
Serena has been at Washington CAN since 2011. She comes to us from the reproductive justice movement. Serena has been critical in creating systems of accountability for our organization and plays a critical role in the day-to-day operations.
Sol Bey, Field Canvass Director
Sol was raised in a poor neighborhood in Pittsburg and he experienced catastrophic loss when his brother was murdered. As an African American man who faced systematic failures first-hand, Sol dedicated his work to reaching community directly through field canvassing. He has over 30 years of canvassing experience and is regarded as one of the most respected trainers in the Seattle area. He has helped build canvassing operations in cities and states across the nation.
