Every year during the Washington State legislative session we host a statewide day of policy advocacy and action! Participants learn about budget and policy issues that impact survivors of domestic violence and connect with the legislators who represent them. This event is always a powerful way our community comes together to make a big impact for survivors of abuse!
2021 Advocacy Day
Thanks to everyone who joined us on February 11, 2021 as we advocated for domestic violence survivors and their families in Washington State!
We kicked-off the day with a webinar from 9-11am. Our policy team talked about our legislative priorities and over 100 survivors and advocates from across the state engaged in a collective action. The afternoon was filled with nearly 50 legislative appointments: virtual 15-minute meetings with Senators and Representatives.
Federal Advocacy Days
We participate annually in the National Network to End Domestic Violence’s Advocacy Days. These take place every June in Washington, D.C., and are an opportunity for us to join state coalitions from across the country to advance a collective agenda for survivors of abuse. See our Federal Policy Advocacy page for our priorities from the 117th Congress.
