On Interfaith Advocacy Day, you will be able to:
- Join plenaries and workshops that will explore the issues on FAN's 2024 Legislative Agenda.
- Meet with advocates from your legislative district to prepare for your legislative visits.
- Meet with your legislator or their legislative assistant! If you register by January 29, FAN will set up an appointment for you and others from your district.
- Lunch will be provided.
Don’t miss this important day in Olympia! Registration deadline is January 29. This year we are limited to 200 participants due to regulations at The United Churches of Olympia. We encourage you to sign up early so that we can guarantee you a spot.
REGISTRATION: Due to the generosity of our donors, there is no cost this year to participate in FAN's Interfaith Advocacy Day. You are welcome to donate to keep our advocacy moving forward in 2024.
After you register, you will receive more information via e-mail as February 8 approaches, including details on the agenda, workshop topics, times of your legislative appointments.

We hope to partner again with Gwinwood Camp and Conference Center to make attending IFAD easier for those of you who live far away. Gwinwood is located on Hicks Lake in Lacey, approximately 20 minutes away from the capitol. If you're interested in staying at Gwinwood the night of February 7, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re excited to have you be FAN in the halls of power on this great day!
