About Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day (Advocacy Day)

Are you passionate about ensuring that everyone in Washington has the opportunity to live in a safe, healthy, and affordable home? Do you want to unite with others to end homelessness in our state? Are you ready to join over 500 other advocates from around Washington to tell your elected officials how you feel?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then please join the Housing Alliance on February 11 in Olympia for our annual Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day!

The day includes:

Inside information and timely updates on affordable housing and homelessness legislation.
Workshops on how to talk to your elected officials and be the most effective advocate possible.
Meetings with your lawmakers for which you’ll be armed with key messages, supporting documents and facts to help share your story.
And an opportunity to feel the power of a strong and growing movement for affordable housing and an end to homelessness.

This year’s theme is “2-11: Hear the Call for Housing and an End to Homelessness.” Advocacy Day will help connect powerful advocates to elected officials in order to make the call to increase access to affordable housing and services and programs that prevent and end homelessness. This year’s theme was chosen in recognition that our date (2-11) is the same phone number (2-1-1) that struggling individuals and families call when trying to get connected to critical resources. This year lets all come out to Olympia and make the call together to ensure our message is heard loud and strong!

Can’t Attend? Take the Advocacy Pledge!

Even if you are unable to make it to Olympia on Monday, February 11, you can still make a huge difference and be an advocate for safe, healthy, affordable homes.
