Uptown Alliance continues to participate in this day of meetings in
Olympia with our State Representatives, Mary Lou Dickerson, and Reuven

will focus on a wide range issues from preventing more draconian cuts

Please join us[

that your voice is heard. You can sign up for Transportation Advocacy


*WHEN: February 10, 2011, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
WHERE: United Churches, 110 11th Avenue SE, Olympia*

Similar to years past we will meet as a large group in the morning and
spend the afternoon meeting with legislators. This year we are going to
dedicate more time to breakout sessions in small groups so you can get
all the detailed information you need to successfully lobby on our 2011
priorities. Additionally, we will be offering a Lobbying 101 role-play
opportunity at our breakout sessions to prepare you for your afternoon
meetings with legislators.

There is TOO MUCH at stake this year and that's why we need YOUR HELP
to fight for Transportation Choices on February 10th in Olympia.* ** [


There will be a car pool arrangement through Transportation Choices.
And there is an early train to Olympia and a return train.
