Legislative Updates

AAUW-WA is a nonpartisan organization. AAUW-WA supports bills sponsored by Democrats and Republicans that fit within our Public Policy Priorities. Each year, AAUW-WA hosts Lobby Day, which is a workshop at which the AAUW-WA Public Policy team explains these priorities, hosts several speakers, and explains how our lobbying efforts work.
