Each year, WCAAP members and partners from all over Washington gather in Olympia to meet directly with legislators and staff, hear from policymakers, and advocate for kids. It’s an empowering way to make an impact on the issues that affect child health statewide. Our 2019 Advocacy Day is scheduled for February 15, 2019 – we hope you will join us! Registration is now open.
Why should you attend WCAAP Advocacy Day?
Everyone has their own reason for speaking up for kids at Advocacy Day. Here are just a few of the reasons people gave for attending in 2018:
Loved the inspiration and collaboration opportunities! I felt like I was part of democracy in action. It was so inspirational to hear from our leaders in Olympia as well and to know how much they seek to collaborate on these important topics.
Great networking and educational value; it is helpful to understand our political process and advocate for children of our state.
We all need to step outside our own day to day patient care to advocate for the good of all patients.
It is a great experience and gets you excited about being a pediatrician again!
