Dear friends,

We are reaching out to invite you to an Advocacy Day in Yakima, Saturday, February 24, 9am-3pm, at Wesley United Methodist Church. Sponsored by Between the Ridges: Alliance for the Common Good, a new organizing project in the Yakima Valley, and co-sponsored by FAN, Yakima Association of Faith Communities, Asian Pacific Islander Coalition, and other community groups. Goals include developing local advocacy, statewide advocacy (with FAN staff), civic engagement, and mobilizing voters. Lunch and interpretation services will be provided, and donations accepted to Between the Ridges.

Please Register here and download flyers in English and Spanish at our events calendar.

We also want you to know that Rev. Eric Don Anderson ended his time as a regional organizer with FAN in December. His duties with hospice chaplaincy were increasing and he no longer had the time he wanted to devote to FAN. I’m sure we’ll still see him at community events! And we thank Eric for his service, teamwork, and deep commitment to justice.

FAN staff are midway through an extremely fast-paced legislative session, and we are getting ready to host FAN advocates in Olympia next week. There’s still room to register for Interfaith Advocacy Day, if the pass is good and you want to make the trip! If you haven’t been receiving FAN weekly updates, you can find them archived on our website under News. And if you are looking for more ways to advocate this session, you can also find links on our Take Action page.

I look forward to seeing you in Yakima on February 24th!

In solidarity,
Elise DeGooyer, Executive Director
