Interfaith Advocacy Days 2023

We are in full engagement with the 2023 State Legislative Session, which officially began Monday, January 9. Our legislative agenda, shaped in collaboration with advocates who participate in FAN meetings year-round, coalition partners, FAN Policy Committee, and the FAN Governing Board can be found on our Legislative Agenda page. Fact sheets for the policies will be added as they become available, and the bill tracker will be updated throughout the session.

We hosted pre-legislative-session trainings to help prepare for the session. You can view the recordings of our 2023 legislative preview and Advocacy 101 Zoom trainings at our YouTube channel. View the slide deck from Advocacy 101 Workshop and our Advocacy Toolkit page.

We hope you will plan to join us for Advocacy Days! Please register and share in your communities:

Eastern Washington Legislative Conference, Saturday, January 21, in Spokane and online (see flyer and registration link on the right).

Interfaith Advocacy Day in Olympia, Thursday, February 9, 9am-3pm. Please register to attend IN PERSON by January 29 at this link.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, there is no cost to attend this year. We will be gathering in-person at The United Churches of Olympia in the morning, and meeting with legislators in the afternoon. We are unsure at this point which portions of the day will be possible to offer online participation, and will provide updates about that and registration for the online portion as more is known.

Please join us to raise voices of faith and conscience in our State Capitol!

We look forward to seeing you at IFAD 2023!
