Your participation in this year’s WA Muslim Lobby Day will ensure that our communities continue to build influence in state politics. 

At the event, you will join 500 Muslims from across the state as you enjoy delicious breakfast and lunch, march together to the Capitol Building, rally at the Capitol Steps, meet in groups with your state lawmakers in their offices, take guided tours of State Capitol Building and Campus, and learn how Washington State Muslims can build real political power in our communities!

You can sign up (see registration form) to take our buses from your city to Olympia and back. Advance registration is required. Cities where we have buses include Seattle, Mountlake Terrace, Tukwila, Kent, Tacoma, Redmond, Richland, Yakima, Pullman, Vancouver, Bellingham and more. This will make your trip as convenient and enjoyable as possible. Of course you may also drive your own vehicle if you prefer. Buses from Western WA cities will leave early morning on January 20 (exact times will be provided to registered persons) and will arrive in Olympia by 8:45am. Buses/vans from Central and Eastern WA cities will arrive at 5pm on Sunday, January 19 in Olympia, allowing time for you to explore downtown Olympia the evening before the event.

Please contact us and we would be happy to help you making lodging arrangements well in advance to ensure you have an enjoyable experience. You have two options for lodging in Olympia:

Stay at the Quality Inn in Olympia. CAIR-WA can cover the cost of hotels for those registered to take buses from Eastern and Central WA cities. We will make hotel reservations for you after you register and will inform you of your room number.

Or, if you would like to cover the cost of your room, please note that rooms with 2 queen beds are available at a special rate of $91 (including all taxes & fees) if you mention "CAIR" or "Muslim Lobby Day." Call (360) 943-4710 or toll-free at 1-877-851-6763 to make reservations and provide your credit/debit card to reserve the room under your name.

The hotel reservations include complimentary wireless internet and a hot breakfast. The hotel is located 6 blocks from the Olympia Center where we will have our morning assembly. If you are taking the bus to Olympia from Central or Eastern WA, your bus will take you to the hotel and will also take you to the morning assembly location from the hotel on the event date. This is already included in your event registration.

  • You will learn how laws are passed and how they affect your life every day!
  • You will see first-hand how state politics works through training, meetings and discussions
  • You will have the unique opportunity to meet your lawmakers face to face, express your concerns and listen to their positions on issues important to you and your family!
