    Action Workshops to Gear Up for the 2019 Legislative Session

    This is a call to action! 

    We are looking to create change on critical issues affecting our state next year and we need your voice to make it happen! Join us for an in-depth look at the upcoming legislative session, a chance to hear from local lawmakers and keynote speakers, learn more about key issues in Washington State such as gun safety, climate change, social justice, and voting rights, and how you can get involved on issues that you are passionate about. Learn how you can advocate and gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to defend our democracy. Speakers and special guests will be announced over the coming weeks and all levels of experience with the League are welcome to attend.

    Registration is $25 and includes lunch and all materials. This year we are offering discounted youth tickets at $10 for community members ages 24 and younger so please reach out to friends, family and students and invite them to attend as well.

    A limited number of scholarships are available if the registration fee would be a barrier to your participation. Apply here.

    If you have any questions please contact LWVWA Lobby Chair Maddy Vonhoff at mvonhoff@lwvwa.org or at 360-713-1997.

    • Capitol Campus, Olympia WA

    Please join the League of Women Voters of Washington and Fix Democracy First in Olympia on February 21,2019.

    On that day we will be meeting with legislators to advocate for bills that expand opportunities to vote, promote more representative election systems, empower disenfranchised communities, reduce the influence of special interest money and strengthen government ethics.  Meet with your legislators, receive hands-on advocacy training, and connect with like-minded advocates and members from across the state. Your participation has a direct impact.

    We have secured the Columbia Room in the Legislative Building. That means we will have a “home base” for the entire day where you can leave personal belongings and stop by to rest and enjoy refreshments in between appointments.

    We are inviting those who are able to chip in $10 per person to help cover the costs of the room and the refreshments, though payment is not required and we do not want anyone to miss the day due to lack of resources. We would also ask you to consider sponsoring other attendees by donating more than $10. 

    We will provide training on critical democracy issues in Washington and how to effectively advocate with your legislator. We will set up meetings with your legislators as well as to help those who would like to testify in committee. No need to be an expert in these policy issues as we will provide the training you need to speak comfortably with your lawmakers that day. Just bring your passion for  democracy and a readiness to learn how to take action!

    The agenda and meeting schedule will go out in January once we know the committee schedules.  

    If you are interested in helping to plan this event or have questions please contact ksakahara@lwvwa.org  or cindy@fixdemocracyfirst.org.
