Coalition Lobby Day & Equity Rally
March 20 @ 10:15 am - 2:30 pm PDT
Join the Seattle King County NAACP with Planned Parenthood Northwest and Hawaii on this important lobby day! Our very own NAACP President, Sadiqa Sakin, is slated to speak at the “Equity Rally” at 1pm.
On March 20th, 2019, 10:15 AM to 2:30 PM, on our Coalition Lobby Day, we will be meeting our legislators to urge them to do everything they can to advocate for our 2019 Legislative Agenda in the remaining weeks of the 2019 legislative session, including Reproductive Health Access for All, Sex Education, and Healthcare Consumer Confidentiality. After lobbying, we will unite on the steps of the capitol to amplify the collective voice of our movement. We will hear from speakers who represent the intersectional approach to equity that we demand from our legislators in Olympia.
We will meet in the Columbia Room of the Legislative Building, located on the 1st floor. (416 Sid Snyder Ave SW, Olympia, WA 98504) at 10:15am, followed by a quick Lobbying Training to make sure everyone is confident and prepared for the day. At 11:00am we will branch out into groups by legislative districts and head out to legislator offices. Afterward, we’ll return to the Columbia Room to eat the provided snacks and light lunch whenever your lobbying is finished. Lunch will wrap up by 12:50pm to make sure everyone has enough time to make it to the steps for the rally at 1:00pm.
The Rally After lobbying and lunch, everyone is expected to assemble on the North Steps of the Legislative Building (416 Sid Snyder Ave SW, Olympia, WA 98504) at 1:00pm. We will take a group photo before our speaking program begins at 1:10pm sharp. During this time, we will be hearing from some of our champion state legislators, PPVNH staff, and community advocates like you! The rally will end around 1:45pm.
