Port Townsend branch talks with legislator

LOBBY DAY — Each year, AAUW-WA hosts Lobby Day where we feature bills that we encourage members to support during the session. Bills must meet our public policy priorities and be vetted by national AAUW. Lobby Day includes guest speakers on topics related to the bills we are supporting. In 2022 we included a panel of AAUW-WA advocates who reviewed priority bills and provided talking points to members. Our members then have an opportunity to meet with their legislators during the week of Lobby Day to ask them to support our AAUW-WA Lobby Day bills. Click to learn more…
