Advocacy Day

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!

2022 Advocacy Day

Join us as we advocate for domestic violence survivors and their families in Washington State! This year’s Advocacy Day is a virtual event, allowing more connection across the state of Washington than ever. We can’t wait to share how we’re advocating for survivors this year and how you can get involved.

We’ll kick-off our day with a webinar from 9am – 11am on February 1st where you will hear our policy priorities and learn about ways to take action from home.

Optional legislative appointments are from 12pm – 5pm. Legislative appointments will be virtual 15-minute meetings with other attendees in your district. Legislative staff generally set the appointments the week of, which is why we are asking you to hold 12pm – 5pm. Our goal is to set up a meeting with all three of your district’s legislators or their staffers (1 Senator, 2 Representatives). We cannot guarantee a meeting with all of your legislators, but will do our very best!

  • If you have attended four or more previous Advocacy Days, there is also an opportunity for you to facilitate your district’s legislative appointments as a WSCADV Captain.
  • If you want to meet with your legislators of facilitate your district’s legislative appointments, please register by Friday, January 14, 2022.

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.
