We are less than a week away from the largest annual gathering at the Washington State Capitol in Olympia – the 38th annual Washington State March for Life.
Are you ready?
If you're planning to attend the March for Life, please make every effort to make an appointment with your your legislators. We are always happy that dozens of senators and representatives join us each year on the legislative steps. Likewise, taking a few minutes to stop by their office means the world to them! Click here if you don't know who your legislators are or how to reach them, or call (800) 562-6000 for assistance.
If you know your legislator(s) stand for Life please thank them and tell them you do too!
If you are unsure if they stand for Life or know for certain they have a different opinion, please let them know you stand for Life. Please always speak the truth in love when representing the infinite value of each person. We want them to know we value them too!
If your schedule won’t allow you to visit your legislators, please be prepared to speak to your senator and two representatives in a postcard or note, which you can write while you're on the road to the Capitol. Please consider leading your fellow bus riders to do the same!
Please be sure your correspondence includes ALL of the following:
- Your full name
- Your physical address (and/or mailing address, if different)
- Your phone number
- Your legislator's name
- Olympia office location
- Legislative district number
Including your contact information is important because your legislators will want to be in touch with YOU and keep track of where their constituents stand. Please serve them by giving them all the info they need to do that. Click here to locate your legislators' Olympia office location or call (800) 562-6000 for assistance.
Keep it simple.
Write from your own point of view and perspective, but keep your message clear.
As an example, “My name is ___________ and I am a pro-life citizen from your district. I believe that each life is infinitely valuable from the womb to natural death. I urge you to vote for legislation that honors that value and against legislation that violates it. Please send the dollars currently allocated to Planned Parenthood to comprehensive community clinics that don’t provide abortion. Parental involvement laws are smart so please vote for them. Thanks for all you do!”
Be sure to be kind and say please and thank you to all those you are in contact with!
