We lobbied in Olympia to advance AAUW’s legislative goals. The focus was Equal Pay (again!) and the Student Loan Bill of Rights. Our speakers were Washington Attorney General Rob Ferguson, a strong advocate for student loan legislation; Representative Tana Senn, a sponsor of our equal pay bill; and Pam Crone, our lobbyist.
