This event is a chance for nonprofit leaders to engage with one another and their lawmakers in Olympia. Our aim is to foster deeper relationships among our nonprofit partners and lawmakers to create more opportunities for collaboration and communicate our priorities for the 2023 legislative session.
Governor Jay Inslee and Representative Chipalo Street will both be speaking at the reception, so we hope you can join us!
We are working to organize meetings with legislators earlier in the day. Please consider joining in an advocacy meeting with other nonprofits from your district.

All legislators and legislative staff, members of NAWA, Philanthropy Northwest, United Ways of the Pacific Northwest, Washington State Community Action Partnership. and the BIPOC ED Coalition are welcome! Advanced registration is required, and registered attendees are welcome to register one guest as well. This will give us an accurate count and ensure we have contact info for all guests.
