On Monday, April 1, about two thousand family, life, and Christian social-justice champions descended on Olympia for “Prevailing By Prayer,” one last rally and citizen-lobbying day of the 2019 Legislative Session. Special thanks go to the Slavic community for making up about three-quarters of the crowd on this important day. Several champion legislators encouraged and implored the crowd to stand for their values and make their voices heard before time runs out on this session.

Senate Bill 5320 requiring parental notification when a minor is seeking an abortion is being heard in the Senate Law & Justice Committee this Thursday at 10 AM.
Please take the time to learn about this important bill and issue, then call the members of the Law & Justice Committee urging them to pass it out of committee and onto the floor for a full Senate vote.
