Sarah DeStasio

Olympia City Council, Position 6, WA

Sarah is a Democratic Socialist running for Olympia City Council, Position 6. She is queer, disabled and a member of the religious left. Sarah co-founded Capital Homecare Cooperative, a worker-owned caregiving agency, after serving her community as a caregiver for many years.

As her city recovers from COVID-19, Sarah wants workers to have every protection Olympia can offer them - like hazard pay and a $15 minimum wage - as well as access to affordable housing and tenant protections. She wants equity and inclusion to be not just be buzzwords but motivate structural change that mean residents have more knowledge, more access and more power when it comes to the council.
