Every year on Presidents’ Day, Democrats from across the state converge on Olympia to eat crab and lobby their legislators. Special guests at this year’s Crab Feed include Governor Jay Inslee, Representatives, statewide officials, and state legislators.
The Crab Feed begins at 5:00pm. Individual tickets are $50 and $10 for children 12 and under. We’ll have a feast of crab, clams, salmon, a vegetarian main dish, and multiple side dishes.
Each year prior to the Crab Feed, we sponsor an all-day Grassroots Forum for party activists coming to Olympia. This year at the Grassroots Forum we will be talking about the Right Wing agenda for America’s legislatures promoted by ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council – http://www.alec.org/). In addition, we will conduct workshops on building a local party organization, the role municipal elections play in building our campaigns and our party, and Vote Builder training for Precinct Committee Officers.
The Grassroots Forum is from 10:00am – 4:30pm. Individual tickets are $15 and include lunch.
Hope to see you there,
Development and Special Events Director
