The Washington Poor People's Campaign is excited to announce that we will partner with the Faith Action Network for their Interfaith Advocacy Day on February 9th in Olympia. Our experiences and understanding of the interlocking injustices our communities face each day need to be heard in Olympia. By gathering together we will directly address our lawmakers to urge them to pass moral policies that fully address poverty and low wealth from the bottom up.
