2020 Advocacy Days
We are so glad you are joining us! Most organizations go down once during session. The Arcs go down weekly to keep up a steady presence. The Arc of King County also participates in several coalitions and attends those advocacy days, as well.

Please let us know which advocacy day you are attending and whether you need support either getting there or during the day. If you are getting yourself down to Olympia, we will meet you there! We can explain what is happening; help you learn about proposed legislation; help you draft a note for your legislators; and help you find their offices. If you want us to try to schedule an appointment, please note that. Warning: this is a short session and appointments are booking up!

Remember to pack a lunch; there are also restaurants on the campus and nearby.

We are offering shuttle service on February 5 and February 19; departing from Seattle (233 6th Avenue N) with additional pickup/drop off in Federal Way (across from the transit center)

We can help arrange car pools on other days. If there is enough interest we may be able arrange for additional shuttles. We need a minimum of 10 riders to book an additional shuttle; recruit your friends!
