Member Advocacy 

Now is the time to start meeting with your Senator and Representatives. Your legislators will not know how to prioritize funding unless they hear from their constituents. They need to know the impacts, the needs, and personal experiences of your communities.  

Please make it a priority to advocate for Medicaid funding. Here’s how: 

Make sure you know the legislative district in which your community is located. Click here to for the legislative district look up.  

Call legislative assistants to book an appointment.  Here’s a roster of all legislators with office contact information. You will want to meet with both of your representatives and your senator. 

A LeadingAge Washington staff member will be available to join your meetings and will provide talking points and any other needed information ahead of time.  

For targeted advocacy, we will be using our new advocacy software SALSA. The SALSA software allows us to generate messaging and to target messaging to key legislators, all you need to do is enter contact information and your facility address and hit send. It’s also possible to expand your messaging to other districts based on the address of your personal residence, if different from the facility. Please watch for action alerts from us.
