Lobby Day 2017

Registration is CLOSED for Lobby Day! This year, On Monday, February 20, President’s Day, we’ll head to our state capital for a full day of advocating for the movements you care about by meeting with legislators, discussing issues with like-minded activists and rallying on the capitol grounds.

This year, Washington CAN! is joining forces with a coalition of groups for EQUITY DAY. The group’s focus will be on funding education the right way. As you know, the Supreme Court ruled our state is not meeting its constitutional obligation to fund education. We want to advocate for funding education WITHOUT cutting funding to vital services like food benefits and health care for people with disabilities.

We will lobby about that issue along with those from our legislative agenda including healthcare, criminal justice reform, housing justice and immigrant rights. Our Lobby Day will start bright and early at 8:30 a.m. at the Capital Theater on 206 5th Avenue Southeast in Olympia.
