Public Policy

King County and City Legislative Issues

The Coalition and our Public Policy Committee take leadership on local public policy issues related to domestic violence in King County, Seattle, and other municipalities when appropriate. Visit our Become a Member page to learn how to get involved.

Local Elections

During election season, the Coalition posts information on candidates and initiatives here to provide information on how candidates address gender-based violence and to highlight which initiatives directly impact gender-based violence survivors and in what ways. As a non-profit organization, the Coalition does not make endorsements or recommendations or show any preference toward any candidate. This effort constitutes nonpartisan voter education allowed under state and federal law.

WA State Legislative Issues

The Coalition partners with the WA State Coalition Against Domestic Violence to work on statewide legislative issues. You can visit the following pages to learn how you can participate in these efforts:
