Lobby Day 2019

We are going to Olympia on February 27, 2019. This is always an important and exciting day- a time to show up and speak up for gun safety legislation. 
Our bus departs Mount Zion Church at 8:00 am. Arrive by 7:45 am. We will return by 5:00 pm. Lots of excellent information, supportive materials, and good companionship is guaranteed!

Thank you for your activism, everyone. We seek that safer world for our grandchildren and for theirs!

Program Meeting – November 14, 2017 – 10:15 am

Grandmothers welcomed Representatives Tana Senn (D-41) Eric Pettigrew (D-37) and John Lovick (D-44) to talk about:
• What will it take for our elected officials to respond to the continued wave of tragic mass shootings?
• Why is it so hard for a majority of legislators to support significant gun safety legislation when voters in every Washington State county except one have demonstrated their support by passing two gun safety initiatives?
• Which of the bills have the greatest chance of resonating with legislators?”
