Washington State Legislative Action Day
Wednesday, February 26, 2020 9:30 AM
Washington State Capitol 416 Sid Snyder Ave SW Olympia WA 98504
Help AAWA increase its presence with legislators in Olympia. Please join us on Wednesday, February 26, to help All Aboard Washington advocate for safer, more reliable, and more frequent passenger rail service connecting communities of all sizes, on both sides of the Cascades.
We'll provide information and tips for communicating with elected officials. You are also welcome to join us at the AAWA-sponsored lunch for the Legislative Rail Caucus at noon in the House Rules Room.
If you can attend, please contact your legislators to make appointments (or we can make arrangements for you), and contact us so that we know who will be joining us. Meet at 9:30 am at the Capitol steps on the north side of the Capitol building.
"When [NARP] comes to Washington, you help embolden us in our efforts to continue the progress for passenger rail. And not just on the Northeast Corridor. All over America! High-speed rail, passenger rail is coming to America, thanks to a lot of your efforts! We’re partners in this. ... You are the ones that are going to make this happen. Do not be dissuaded by the naysayers. There are thousands of people all over America who are for passenger rail and you represent the best of what America is about!"
