Your Role in Advocacy Days
Local Chapter Priorities
Do you know what's happening in your local community? Are there crucial conservation needs that require attention? Perhaps there's a vital habitat project that needs funding or support. Audubon Advocacy Days offers a unique platform to communicate these local priorities to your representatives in Olympia.
Audubon Washington Policy Agenda
During the upcoming 60-day legislative session, our state office will be at the forefront of efforts to safeguard and bolster spending on conservation and climate priorities. We will advocate for the protection of the Climate Commitment Act (CCA) and ensure that CCA funding contributes to climate resilience for both birds and people. Additionally, we'll call upon legislators to safeguard, restore, and enhance Puget Sound shorelines and Shrub-steppe habitat.
Environmental Priorities Coalition (EPC) Priorities
In collaboration with our partners in the Environmental Priorities Coalition (EPC), we are committed to advancing a comprehensive Environmental Priorities agenda at the state level. We are also working on a partnership agenda that seeks to create a more diverse, equitable, and just Washington state.
