Interfaith Advocacy Day 2014

 Registration is closed for this event

The voice of the faithful in Washington State will resound in the halls of power on January 30, 2014! This year's theme is "Dismantling the Culture of Violence."

FAITH ACTION NETWORK’s Interfaith Advocacy Day in Olympia brings to our elected leaders the voice of compassion and justice. We partner for the common good with people of all faiths—and with people of no faith at all—who stand up boldly to challenge the powerful.

Your meeting with legislators and/or their staff this day is the most important thing our faith advocates can do. Join workshops that will break down the issues. Get current best practices on how to advocate in today’s legislature. Learn how to prepare for briefings and hearings. And an appointment will be made for you and others from your district to speak directly with your state legislators. Don’t miss this important day in Olympia!

*Early bird registration is $15 through January 15, and $20 after.* FAN will provide lunch, prepare the materials you need, and set up the meetings with your legislators prior to your arrival.

Online registration ends January 28th at midnight, you can still register after that time by calling our office at (206) 625-9790.


To help us in this important work, make sure you register with a strong commitment to join us on January 30th for a great day! Soon after, you will receive details on the agenda, workshop topics, and legislative appointments.
