Event description

Description

True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Beyond Vietnam, 1967

In the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of action, we are hosting two advocacy trainings in January and February to not only inspire people to have a voice, but give them the tools to advocate for lasting change.

Trainings are free and open to the public and will give an overview of the legislative process, tips for meeting with legislators, and provide an opportunity for community members to learn and practice skills to be more effective at advocating to the Washington State legislature.

Hosted by: United Way’s Public Policy Committee, the Community Foundation of Snohomish County, and the Housing Consortium of Everett & Snohomish County.

Facilitated by: Mark Smith of the Housing Consortium of Everett & Snohomish County, Erik Ashlie-Vinke of the Economic Alliance of Snohomish County, Alex Lark of Housing Hope, and Adie Simmons, Executive Director of Washington Family Engagement.

The Feb. 2 training is geared towards helping parents navigate Olympia as advocates! We will have a breakfast and children are welcome at this event!
