YOUR Rights: COVID-19 shots, masks, tests

ALERT: Inslee and his staff intentionally drafted religious exemption requirements for state employees that are so narrow almost no one qualifies. This is unethical, immoral, and illegal. Please see this news article for detail: Rantz: Email shows COVID religion exemption intentionally written to disqualify staff.

We hear you! Coercion is everywhere and you need to know your rights and actions you can take to defend them.

The vaccination mandates announced on September 9 by President Joe Biden, and in August by Governor Inslee, King County, City of Seattle and Supreme Court of WA are unprecedented and there are many declaring such mandates violate the Constitution and cannot be made by presidential executive order or by a governor’s  emergency proclamation.

That issue is raised in this opinion letter from Federal Way Municipal Court Judge Dave Larson addressed to Chief Justice Gonzales and the other members of the Washington State Supreme Court.

Not only do the mandates violate medical freedom and bodily autonomy, they are unscientifically sound. They are, in fact, dangerous. The COVID-19 vaccines do not prevent infection, transmission, hospitalization, or death. They actually increase risk of infection and risk of severe disease through antibody dependent enhancement (ADE). And they have proven to be the most dangerous vaccines ever introduced.

It is a crime against humanity that existing safe and inexpensive nutrient+drug protocols are being silenced in order to push the dangerous failed vaccines. It is a crime against humanity that superior natural immunity is being ignored.

You are not alone. Millions of Washingtonians are appalled at the vaccine mandates and seeking ways to fight from many angles.

Medical and Religious Exemptions are required to be available per federal and state law, and were announced with the governor’s proclamations (21-14 and 21-14.1).



You are encouraged to:

  1. Request a written copy of the employer’s policies setting forth their requirement and their criteria for evaluating exemptions.
  2. File a religious exemption or medical exemption with your employer after consulting with an attorney or by following the advice they provide on their websites (resources below).
  3. If you’re interested in joining a future class action suit with Silent Majority Foundation (which has already filed a suit challenging Inslee’s mandates), send an email with the following: your name, employer, position/title to In the subject line, indicate either of the following, as it applies to you: “Potential class action litigation–vaccine mandate” or “Adverse effects potential class action.”
  4. Download the Guide to Getting Employers into Checkmate regarding filing a complaint with a government agency regarding one’s workplace before an employee is terminated, from

Remember that attorneys can help over time, but there is no instant fix. We urge you to do your due diligence, understand your rights, and advocate for yourself. Each of us must assert our rights now—by resisting, talking to people, and attending events. We are all in this fight together, and we each have a responsibility to be our own advocate during this unprecedented time.
