APRI-Seattle Chapter is dedicated to developing programs that will extend democracy to those who have been traditionally disfranchised or discouraged from participating in the political system, strengthening political alliances needed to assure democratic social change and projecting social and economic programs that will improve the lives of all Americans.

To Achieve these goals, the Apri-Seattle Chapter believes in the creation of a broad based coalition of forces who in believe in social progress or minorities, the poor and working people. The Labor Movement occupies a pivotal role in this alliance since it serves as a bi-racial organizational vehicle of working people and has a principled commitment to social change. Our programs seek to enhance the role of all trade unionists.

The policies and programs of the A. Philip Randolph Institute and its affiliates have been governed by strict adherence to the political values and principles exemplified by our founder, A. Philip Randolph, 1889-1979.

Congratulations to the Officers for their willingness to serve!
