In the centuries-old Quaker tradition of leading the struggle for human and civil rights, Quaker Voice on Washington Public Policy focuses on issues of criminal justice, economic justice, and environmental stewardship and peace, particularly concerns not sufficiently addressed by other organizations.
Guided by Friends testimonies of peace, simplicity, equality, community, integrity, and stewardship, we:
- Research and identify, at the Washington state level, legislation of concern to Friends.
- Alert Friends with timely information concerning this legislation.
- Develop relationships with state legislators in Olympia and support lobbying on our issues by Friends throughout the state.
Since 1997, Quaker Voice on Washington Public Policy has worked effectively toward the enactment of public policy in the state of Washington that is just, compassionate, and respectful of the inherent worth of every person.
