  • Celebrating progress – reforms that support victims!
    Hi Roger,

     

    This year at the BE LOUD Breakfast, we asked you to call your representatives in support of a bill that would amend the process of obtaining a Sexual Assault Protection Order (SAPO).

     

    Your calls, emails, and persistence WORKED. On May 5, 2017 Governor Jay Inslee signed Senate Bill 5256 into law, creating equal protection for victims of sexual assault in the state of Washington.

     

    Monday, with Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs (WCSAP) and joined by First Lady Trudi Inslee, we celebrated this historic reform. Progress like this could not happen without your support and action. Thank you.

  • Disaster Preparedness Update


    DisasterPrep_730Yesterday, I received a briefing at the Washington Military Department’s “Mission Control” Emergency Operations Center. We discussed disaster preparedness and response. Washington State leads the nation in preparing for cyber attacks on critical information technology systems, but we still have a lot of work to do.
    Of greatest concern, though, is the “Big One” — The Cascadia Earthquake that could hit tomorrow or 50 years from now — we have no way of knowing. Thousands will perish. Roads, bridges, and hospitals will crumble. We’ll be out of power for at least 6 months. Beware the huge Tsunamis. We are not prepared.
