The Coalition builds on the energy of hundreds of community members across King County who care deeply about affordable housing, safety, shelter and justice for people who are experiencing homelessness. When we speak up loudly and clearly to our state representatives and ask them to prioritize smart programs and support, good policies, fair and robust budgets, we see big results.
Our workshops are fun! Discuss funding proposals for shelter, housing and support services and review steps everyone can take to ensure housing and homelessness concerns are prioritized in our local government. Nancy Amidei, incomparable pro-democracy cheerleader, local policy experts and Coalition staff present details about several key issues. Learn simple actions, sample messages and practice your skills. Leave informed and inspired with tools to engage your classmates, fellow congregants, neighbors and others to speak up and make a difference. It's a short (60 day) session in Olympia, join us for a workshop to make your voice heard and affect real change!
Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day is February 1!
Join the Coalition and hundreds of other housing advocates in Olympia, Thursday, February 1 to tell our legislators that we care about our homeless neighbors! Advocacy Day includes workshops, rallies, pre-arranged meetings with your lawmakers, lunch and more.
Every voice makes a difference at Advocacy Day; and it's your chance let your lawmakers know that you care about finding solutions to the affordable housing and homelessness crisis in Washington. Experienced advocates coordinate each lawmaker meeting, but it’s the faces and stories from their district that lawmakers remember.
