Over the next 60 days of the 2018 legislative session, many decisions will determine the fate of many of the issues that we care about. This is why Faith Action Network is excited to offer two free advocacy trainings in order to better equip faith partners with the skills and resources they need to make a huge impact in 2018. These trainings will  have something for everyone, whether you are new to advocacy or have been advocating for years. We will be discussing a few of our 2018 legislative priorities and connect people to accessible resources to increase their effectiveness. You don’t want to miss these two opportunities to network, learn and organize with other people of faith to ensure Washingtonians in all communities have what they need to thrive and succeed.
