We have invited Representative Orwall to discuss ACLU’s Justice First Campaign. We hope to hear some updates about the status of legislation on our current ACLU Justice First priorities: Driving while Suspended License III, Teen Sexting and the unconstitutional Death Penalty as well as other human and civil rights legislation.

The conversation will also highlight our own Burien priorities for the State House, and we will take this opportunity to discuss how to be effective advocates: what are the best methods for reaching out to our elected officials, how to identify what other agencies to partner with, and how to amplify the voices of 33rd LD citizens and beyond.

While Burien will be the focus, we believe this event will be useful to anyone interested in learning more about what’s happening, how to interact with elected officials, and what the challenges are to passing important legislation to protect people’s civil rights.

For up to date information, please see our Facebook Event or email [email protected].
