Be Prepared to Advocate
All LWV-TC members should receive the LWVWA Legislative Newsletter during the the Washington State Legislative. If you are a League member but do not receive the LN, go to lwvwa.org to sign up. Also, visit this page often to see what issues are of particular interest to LWV-TC.
League advocacy is based on well-studied and adopted-by-concurrence positions and principles. Visit the Positions and Studies page to learn more about them. Local and state advocacy must be consistent with national.
National positions and principles are reviewed and updated every two years, at the LWVUS Convention. The results of the latest convention's work may be found in the LWVUS 2018-2020 Impact on Issues. Click here to see that document.
The Washington State League positions are also reviewed and update at the LWVWA Convention. The results of the most recent State Convention's work is found in the LWVWA Program in Action 2019-2021. Click here to seen the State document.
Use the 2021 They Represent You (TRY) to get contact information for elected officials.
Members and friends of LWVTC meet weekly for Coffee with the League. This provides an opportunity to hear about Thurston County governmental issues and processes of interest. During the Legislative Session, statewide issues are also discussed at these get-togethers.
