Advocacy Day in Washington

Last week, staff from 211info joined over 600 advocates in Olympia where we participated in Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day, sponsored by the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance. Statewide representatives from Washington 211 also provided support and sponsorship to the day's events.

As we convened on the capitol steps and in the offices of elected officials, we rallied support and brought our voices to the table in support of house and senate bills aimed to help find solutions to the affordable housing and homelessness crisis in Washington state. Advocates met respectively with representatives from the 17th, 18th, and 49th Legislative Districts which encompass Clark County. We'd like to share some of the images posted on our social media accounts including Instagram and Twitter
