FAITH ACTION NETWORK’s Interfaith Advocacy Day on Thursday, February 9, 2017 in Olympia brings to our elected leaders the voice of compassion and justice. We partner for the common good with people of all faiths who stand up boldly for our shared values. Your meeting with legislators and/or their staff on this day is the most important thing our faith advocates can do.
On Interfaith Advocacy Day, you will be able to:

  • Join workshops that will break down the issues on FAN’s 2017 Legislative Agenda
  • ​Learn current best practices on how to advocate in today’s legislature
  • Prepare for briefings and hearings with advocates from your legislative district
  • Meet with your legislator! Once you register, FAN will set up an appointment for you and others from your district 
  • Lunch will be provided

Don’t miss this important day in Olympia!

REGISTRATION: $15.00 when paid in advance, and $20.00 if you pay at the door. Your registration fee helps to cover some of the cost of renting our meeting space, catering, and materials. Contact us if you need a scholarship. REGISTER HERE.

After you register, you will be emailed details on the agenda, workshop topics, and the times of your legislative appointments. To help us in this important work, make sure you register with a strong commitment to join us on February 9!
