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.
"The National Association of Railroad Passengers has done yeoman work over the years and in fact if it weren’t for NARP, I'd be surprised if Amtrak were still in possession of as a large a network as they have. So they've done good work, they're very good on the factual case."
