This course is intended to give students the tools to understand, analyze, and be able to advocate for policy in the political environment. Learning about stakeholders and participants in the policy process, including elected officials, lobbyists, advocates, appointees, and others is a critical first step, but understanding their motivations and interests, as well as external institutional, social, economic, and cultural factors is important as well. This course will be grounded in the issues and topics of the Washington Legislature during the 2022 legislative session.
