I’m just reaching out with a couple of opportunities and I was hoping that you could share them with your respective student communities.
Huskies on the Hill:
Join the Associated Students of UW (ASUW) on Friday, February 5th as we lobby our legislators to advocate for student issues! You will be participating in meetings with legislators and other programming events between 9 AM and 5PM. Students who register for this year’s virtual Lobby Day will have the opportunity to participate in several 15 minute meetings with state legislators throughout the day, as well as larger ASUW group activities. During these meetings, students will be advocating in support of measures on the 2021 ASUW Legislative Agenda, passed by the Student Senate. Although we will be providing fact sheets and training to students ahead of time, we want students to share their personal experiences relating to these issues as those are most valuable. We hope that by participating in this event, students can gain tools and experience in order to take action on other issues that are important to them in the future. We will also host a virtual training prior to lobby day to discuss our legislative agenda, talking points, and how to lobby as a student! If interested please fill out this form: asuwogra.
Are you passionate or have had personal experiences around these following issues: Food Insecurity & Housing, Campus Sustainability, Reallocating Campus Safety Resources, Sexual Assault Awareness and Care?
Then we want to hear your story! Please fill out the google form below if you’re interested in sharing your unique story to both legislators and the UW community. You will be contacted after filling out the form for an informal interview around your experience and the stories that you share will then be combined into an animated storybook! Your stories are powerful and we want to ensure that it’s heard.
