Take Action for Access to Protection Orders

Home is not a safe place for everyone.

COVID-19 “stay home” orders have isolated people experiencing domestic violence and sexual assault, resulting in many having fewer options for safety and support. Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 20-45 improved access to Protection Orders, ensuring that survivors could apply for protection online and providing alternatives to in-person service of these orders.

This weekend, while the Majority Caucus leadership voted to extend the proclamation protecting survivors, the Minority leadership did not. As a result, the proclamation and its protections expired on Sunday.

Please take action today! Contact your legislators and ask them to put the safety measures included in Proclamation 20-45 back in place.

Not sure who your legislators are? No problem! You can find them here using the district finder.

Thank you for supporting survivors across our state!
