Save the Date – Hunger Action Day on Friday, February 22, 2013

Our annual anti-hunger lobby day in Olympia will be held at United Churches of Olympia
again, so start spreading the word to your staff, board, volunteers, neighbors and
friends! Registration for Hunger Action Day will be available after November.

Hunger Action Day on February 22 is a fun, informative, hands-on opportunity to
be part of the democratic process: we provide training on the issues, you hear
about what’s happening right then in the Legislature, and we help arrange meetings
with your lawmakers so you can talk about our Coalition’s priorities directly with
the leaders who can make a difference.

Encourage your colleagues and friends to be informed this session – sign up for
AHNC updates

As we do every year, beginning in January AHNC will send weekly updates about what’s
happening in Olympia, giving our members the support you need to be informed and
to contact your representatives and senator in Olympia throughout session.

To sign up your friends and colleagues, go to our website (www.wsahnc.org) and click
on the orange “Sign Up for Alerts & Updates” button.

Don’t forget – turn in your ballot and be counted on November 6!
