On Tuesday, Feb. 12, around a 150 Washington residents traveled to Olympia to advocate for transportation choices. Some traveled as far as 250 miles to tell their representatives and senators to allocate funding for transit, walking and bicycling in their transportation budget.
While state legislators see lobbyists every single day, they really want to hear from us — their constituents and neighbors. Transportation Advocacy Day was our chance to talk directly with our elected state representatives and speak out in support of a balanced transportation budget that promotes bicycling, walking, transit, rail, carpooling and more.
Members of Team Group Health were present to advocate for bicycling. We spent the day learning about the policies and bills up for discussion, meeting with transportation advocacy groups and talking to our legislators.
