of Public Lands
Empowering Voters. Defending Democracy 

Are you interested in staying active on state and local issues this year?

Learn how at the League of Women Voters Action Workshop, January 12 at Shoreline Community College, 16101 Greenwood Avenue N, Shoreline 98133, Student Union Building main dining room.

9:30am to 2:30pm

Registration is FREE for Shoreline Students and the first 30 students who register also receive free lunch.

The Action Workshop focuses on the state legislature and the workshop identifies how to be engaged-- from connecting to your legislators to joining the lobbying team.
  • There will be an in-depth look at the upcoming legislative session. 
  • Lawmakers will share their experiences and plans. 
  • Learn how to advocate on issues such as gun safety, climate change, social justice and voting rights.
  • Figure out how to get involved in meaningful ways.
  • Learn skills, get informed and become confident in how to defend democracy.


Guest Speaker will be Hilary Franz, the Commission for Public Lands. In her job she protects and manages nearly six million acres of public lands in Washington State – from coastal waters and aquatic reserves, to working forests and farms, to commercial developments and recreation areas. Commissioner Franz is committed to ensuring our public lands are healthy and productive, both today and for future generations.

She is leading the push to make Washington’s lands resilient in the face of climate change, investing in carbon sequestration and clean energy with wind, solar, and geothermal infrastructure.

Registration is $25 and includes lunch and all materials. This year there is a discounted youth ticket at $10 for community members ages 24 and younger, so reach out to friends, family and students and invite them to attend as well.

The Action Workshop will take place in the Student Union Building. Parking for the event is free.

A limited number of scholarships are available if the registration fee would be a barrier to your participation. Apply here.

If you have questions contact LWVWA Lobby Chair Maddy Vonhoff 360-713-1997.
