Equal Rights Washington (ERW) is organizing their annual LGBTQ lobby day in Olympia.
GSBA strongly encourages all members to get involved in LGBTQ Lobby Day if youare able to spend the day in Olympia. Get to meet your legislators, actively support LGBTQ issues, and experience first-hand how your government works to serve you.
On Thursday, February 21st, please join Equal Rights Washington as we head to Olympia to meet with our elected representatives for Lobby Day.
Together, we will speak with state legislators about issues of importance to the LGBTQ community, including passing a ban on gay and trans panic as a legal defense for violence and ensuring consent is taught as part of public schools’ sex education curriculum. You’ll also have the chance to meet other activists and supporters who believe in a Washington where all people, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression, are safe and treated with respect and dignity.
