Bethany Advocates in Olympia
Two carloads of people from Bethany took part in the Interfaith Advocacy Day in Olympia on Feb. 6.
After participating in workshops, they advocated for issues important to them in the offices of their 23 rdLegislative District senators and representatives. Among the issues that rose to the top for the Bethany group were: gun-control measures; repeal of the death penalty; using funds from the capital-gains tax for early childhood education and families; adding $10 million to the state Housing Trust Fund; and standing behind the Clean Fuels Standard Bill.
The day was hosted by Faith Action Network of Washington. One of its leaders, the Rev. Paul Benz, concluded, “Democracy is not a one-day affair.”
