Join the Coalition on Homelessness for a fun, free, participatory workshop!

What can the Seattle City Council do this budget season to take the city’s response to the crisis of homelessness to scale? How can King County residents influence local decisions about funding and programs that help, house, and shelter our neighbors?

This is the local iteration of the Homelessness Advocacy 101 series and will focus on budget advocacy in Seattle and King County. The Seattle City Council is currently meeting about the City’s budget and deciding what to fund and what not to fund. At this workshop:

Hear the latest status updates about the budget and the Coalition’s $93 million budget recommendations to help and house people who are homeless, and take our city’s crisis response to scale.

Get a Civics 101 refresher from Nancy Amidei (Professor emerita at the UW School of Social Work) – how a bill becomes a law, who represents you locally, at the state level, and federally and how to communicate with them, and how YOU can be an effective advocate for housing, services, and shelter.

Speak up and learn how to get other people to speak up with you this fall!

Register today and invite anyone you think would be interested.
