Actions and Detail Panel
Make Washington even more Great. Information & Education
Sun, October 1, 2017, 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM PDT
In this educational group, Jennifer will help individuals navigate the Washington State website to identify and track legislative bills. As a group, we will explore bills of interest, and walk through how to sort bills by topic or committee, understand where the bill is in process, how to read a bill, and how to comment on bills of interest. This group is intended to be educational and informative, providing tools for individuals to make their voices heard at the legislative level. While the orientation of the group is intended to be on the progressive political side, it is not intended to be a polarizing or divisive meeting. Different v...iewpoints will be honored and respected, although hostility or aggression will not. Please come with your tact and respect in hand! Feel free to bring your laptop or tablet to employ the steps as we go along. WiFi available at Spa Eir.
