Everything You Need to Know About Legislative Session!
Washington’s 2023 Legislative Session is officially underway and the Alliance team is back with our most ambitious agenda to-date! We are heading to Olympia to urge lawmakers to ban the sale of assault weapons, require a permit, safety training, and waiting period to purchase a gun, enable survivors of gun violence to seek justice in court, restore local governments’ authority to regulate firearms, and more.
This year also marks the return to in-person activities for the first time in over two years! We are going to need your help as we call on lawmakers to take bold action to address the gun violence epidemic. But we know it can be hard to keep track of everything that’s going on. So we have put together a one-stop shop with everything you need to know about the 2023 legislative session. Bookmark this page👇
As our region continues to experience record levels of gun violence, we must ensure that our elected leaders build on the progress we’ve made in recent years and take bold action to protect our communities from gun violence.
