People’s Rights Washington has 12 area assistants for 9 areas and 5325 members, the largest subunits being Area 2S with 1119 members, and Area 4 with 1071. The Washington chapter also has one statewide Facebook group and 9 additional area Facebook groups. The statewide Facebook group has 1746 members while membership in the area groups ranges from 383 in Area 8, to 212 and 204 in Areas 3 and 4, respectively, to 19 in Area 7.
Along with Idaho People’s Rights, Washington has been one of the most active chapters. The group has been especially active in southern Washington where, among other activities, Kelli Stewart has joined forces with Patriot Prayer’s Joey Gibson to press the Clark County sheriff and other local public officials around COVID-19 related issues.
All told, beginning in at least May People’s Rights Washington, area chapters or leaders mobilized around various COVID-19 related issues multiple times – including holding events in May in Tacoma, Battle Ground, Camas, and twice in Vancouver; in June in Vancouver; in July in Deer Park, Tacoma, twice in Spokane, and three times in Vancouver; and in August in Vancouver and twice Spokane, including once outside the home of a Spokane County Regional Health District doctor.
In August, People’s Rights Washington Area 8 held a meet-and-greet event in Spokane and a “Justice for Sean Anderson rally outside the Spokane County Jail.
While Kelli Stewart is officially listed as a Washington State Area 4 Assistant in People’s Rights, she plays an outsized role in the region and has helped build southern Washington into one of the group’s strongest areas. Stewart’s activism has included organizing efforts in Idaho, Oregon, and Montana. Stewart’s involvement in Ammon Bundy’s networks extends back to shortly after he led the 2016 armed occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon.
