Advocacy Actions

You + Advocacy Actions = Powerful Change

Thank you for taking action for a more equitable state.

The following list of online actions need your advocacy.

In addition, you can call the Washington legislative hotline. With one call to the hotline at 1.800.562.6000 you can leave a message with your legislature to support or oppose multiple bills at once (see the bill names below).

Either by phone or or by taking action on the following, thank you for making  a positive impact TODAY:

Federal actions:
CFPB blockThe national Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has worked for the past six years to protect American consumers from predatory banking and lending. The CFPB has returned nearly $12 billion to 29 million Americans harmed by illegal financial practices. Despite all this great work, the CFPB is fighting for its life. Special interests in Washington D.C. are working to strip away the power of the CFPB and key consumer protections with it. We will have ongoing actions to protect consumers in the US.

 

State actions:

State BudgetWe have a state budget that funds education without massively cutting social services. The revenue used for these funds may work in the short term but do nothing to change the unfair tax structure in our state. There is no action at this time but you can read more details here.

For decades, Poverty Action members have worked collectively to fight for laws that work to build equity, and prevented policies that would deepen poverty in our state. From keeping people housed during the foreclosure crisis, and restoring the right to vote for thousands of previously incarcerated people – we proven that our collective actions make a huge difference.
