Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness invites you to an engaging, fun, and inspiring Homelessness Advocacy 101 workshop to learn to speak up for smart policies and robust funding that will lead to a healthy and housed Washington.
- Learn how to be an effective advocate – and help others speak up, too.
- Refresh your 8th grade civics and put it to use.
- Get good information about current proposals to create more affordable homes and help people while they are homeless.
We the people can influence our elected officials at every level of government to make housing, safety, and justice top priorities. Right now is the time to contact state legislators in Olympia about real solutions for homeless people, and urge them to pass smart policies, fund good programs, and craft budgets that put people first.
The workshop is fun, free, and open to all! Friend of the Coalition Nancy Amidei (Civic Engagement Project) and local policy experts review how good ideas become laws and budgets and explain 3-4 key proposals. Come for simple actions, sample messages, and a chance to practice your skills. You will leave informed and inspired, with tools to engage your co-workers, classmates, clients, fellow congregants, and others to speak up and make a difference.
There are also workshops on Wednesday January 29 in Seattle and Saturday, February 8 in Kent.
