    Action Workshops to Gear Up for the 2018 Legislative Session

    Get Ready for Action!

    This year the League of Women Voters of Washington is presenting three Action Workshops in Olympia, Seattle and Tacoma. These workshops cover LWVWA advocacy priorities for the upcoming legislative session and will give you an opportunity to: 
    • Help us flex our political muscle in Olympia.
    • Get the inside scoop on what to expect for the upcoming legislative session.
    • Learn about critical issues facing our state, such as climate change, the challenge of raising revenue, education, and campaign finance.
    • Discuss the issues of greatest interest to you with legislators and our lobby team.
    • Gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be a more effective, powerful advocate for the issues you care about.
    • Network with other advocates involved in the League.
    • Meet LWVWA’s dynamic lobbyist team: Nancy Sapiro and Pam Crone.

    All workshops are 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

    Registration fee of $25 includes lunch, coffee and all workshop materials. 

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

    Please join the League of Women Voters of Washington and Fix Democracy First in Olympia to lobby our legislators to improve election access, voting rights, campaign finance and legislative ethics.
    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. We will also get/provide training on the critical  Democracy issues in Washington and how to effectively advocate with your legislator. While committee meeting schedule is yet to be determined, we are optimistic that some of the bills we are working on will be heard and discussed in committee that day. We will provide help for those who want to testify and assist in setting up meetings with your legislators. If you have questions please contact ksakahara@lwvwa.org  or
    cindy@fixdemocracyfirst.org.
