Legislative Day

On February 4th dozens of staff, clients, and volunteers represented CISC at Asian Pacific American Legislative Day in Olympia. CISC was just one of several organizations providing a voice for Asian Pacific Americans in Washington State, as the state government considers solutions to its current budget crisis. Further cuts to the budget would undermine the services that CISC and other organizations provide to the Asian Pacific American community, and this event was an opportunity for CISC to make the Governor and state government aware of our clients' concerns. It was also a chance for our clients to educate themselves about the legislative process and the budget issues facing our state.
