Bringing the power of public health to Olympia

As they deliberate important policy decisions, lawmakers value our input as both public health professionals and constituents. Sharing your stories about how public health makes a difference in the lives of your clients, friends, family and neighbors is a great way to highlight the importance of public health.

In 2018, 150  people joined us in Olympia to educate over 100 lawmakers about the importance of public health. Please continue to be an advocate. Legislators want to  hear from you. Find your district and email your legislators (email: [email protected]), or call the Legislative Hotline 1-800-562-2000 about public health topics that are important to you. Save the date of March 6th, 2019 for Legislative Education Day.
