Join us for “Advocacy 101,” a FUN training with Nancy Amidei. Together with local experts & allies, we’ll remind you of what you might have learned in 8th grade:

  • Who makes decisions in Olympia?
  • How does a bill become a law?
  • What can regular people do to have a say?

We’ll share the basics of key legislative proposals to create housing, support people who are homeless, and make a better future for all. You’ll leave informed & inspired, with simple actions and sample messages to use with your classmates, fellow congregants, neighbors, and friends. Learn to speak up effectively and make a real difference!
