Friends have been a leading voice for justice for several centuries. Our voice in state government is critically important to many marginalized citizens of our state – including tens of thousands of state residents who have been enmeshed in the criminal justice system or suffer economic hardship – and who cannot speak effectively for themselves.

Friends Committee on Washington Public Policy invites you to participate in our seventh annual Quaker Lobby Day on Monday, Presidents’ Day February 16th, 2015

The day will begin at 9 am at the Olympia Friends Meetinghouse, 3201 Boston Harbor Road, Olympia WA 98506. There we will discuss our priority issues, such as addressing climate change, support for former prisoners, and preserving the safety net for those with limited resources. We will then go to the Capitol Building by noon to bring our Quaker perspective as we meet with our individual legislators about these issues.

If you’ve never lobbied before, you are not alone! Perhaps you’re hesitant about lobbying because you’re unfamiliar with the issues. If so, Quaker Lobby Day is the place to learn. And registrants from the same legislative district will have the opportunity to visit legislators as a delegation with appointments made with the legislators for that district.  Read what Quaker Lobby day is like.

Later, we will send you an agenda for the day, updates on the issues, and directions to the Olympia Friends Meetinghouse – and set up appointments with your local legislators.
