Lobby Day is an opportunity for you to meet with your district representatives in the House and Senate and share your expertise regarding your local program and the services you provide to their constituents. Lobby Day is also your opportunity to be an advocate for the WCSAP legislative agenda and to discuss with your legislators the need for them to champion WCSAP-supported legislation. Legislative support is vital for maintaining and enhancing sexual assault services in Washington State and for addressing sexual violence issues at the state level. Your expertise needs to be shared with elected officials so they can be well informed and support quality policy.

The Healthy Masculinity Summit is something different. There will be no presentations, no slideshows, and no lectures. There will be story gathering, conversations, and a more participatory environment.The Summit is the beginning of a new movement for creating a healthier world, and you can be a vital voice in shaping that movement. Women and men from all walks of life will be coming to Washington, DC, October 27-29 to envision a healthier future, a world where masculinity is defined through inner strength and not through violence. Will you be a founder of this movement? Will you bring your unique perspective on healthy masculinity to this first-of-its-kind Summit? Spaces are limited and registration closes October 7.
