Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day

Printer-friendly versionSend by email





At Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day, your voice is heard on some of the most pressing issues of our time: housing affordability and an end to homelessness. Be a part of one of the largest annual lobby days at the Washington state capitol!

Registration fees are on a sliding scale ($0-$25), with full and partial scholarship options open to anyone who needs them – check back in early December to register.

Advocacy Day includes workshops, rallies, pre-arranged meetings with your lawmakers, lunch, and more. If you need some convincing, check out this video on the importance of advocacy and community action!

Every voice makes a difference at Advocacy Day; and it's your chance let your lawmakers know that you care about finding solutions to the affordable housing and homelessness crisis in Washington. Experienced advocates coordinate each lawmaker meeting, but it’s the faces and stories from their district that lawmakers remember. Don't know your district or who your lawmakers are? Look them up here!

Meetings with lawmakers, workshops, and other events of the day will focus on advancing the Housing Alliance policy priorities for the year. For more information, check out our State Advocacy page.

Sponsors make our annual Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day a reality, and help us to educate and engage legislators and their staff.
