Wed, Feb 5- 2020 – Moving Forward on Health Care Bills in Olympia
HCHR Zoom Live-Stream Strategy Call
We are ⅓ of the way through the 60-day legislative session in Olympia and things are moving fast. A number of Health Care Is a Human Right’s member organizations are leading the advocacy for bills we support. We invite you to join a one-hour Zoom-only meeting to learn the status of these bills and what needs to be done to move them forward before the February 7 deadline (cut-off) for bills to pass out of their committees of origin. Our voices can make the difference!
