Looking forward to seeing our Spokane friends at this Sunday's Spring Summit, 3-5pm at West Central Episcopal Mission. Spread the word!
We give extra big cheers of joy and gratitude to Rick Steves for boosting our efforts with a $15,000 matching gift for faith communities' contributions to FAN this month. This was in celebration of the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther and the Reformation, which Rich has documented in a new DVD. Let us know if you'd like more information about a screening in your community.
Thank you Rick for your faithful citizenship and believing in FAN's work statewide!
BIG THANKS to the 100 of you who participated in #GiveBIG yesterday and invested $13,189 in FAN's work for justice! We thank all of you who gave in other ways too--through our website, at your congregation, in envelopes through the mail, and with your hours of volunteer commitment. We raise our hands with yours, and know that we are all in this together! You give us hope!
Thank you Seattle Met Magazine for recognizing the value of FAN's work: "In joining the social justice muscle of communities of faith, Muslim to Jewish to Buddhist to Episcopal, FAN fosters interfaith cooperation, inspires commitment from beyond the pool of usual suspects, and bolsters the progressive peace-and-justice voice lobbying in Olympia." fanwa.org

Check this out! KNKX recently interviewed Father Antonio Illas of Saint Matthew/San Mateo Episcopal Church in Auburn, Washington -- a friend of FAN -- about his personal story.
"In this story, we tell you how Illas went from being a man of the law, to a man of faith heading up a church that helps the poor, the disenfranchised and the undocumented."

After celebrating wins along the way, we just have to gird ourselves for the hard battles ahead. Here's an example: the White House budget will eliminate 7.7% of programs in WA state, like low income energy assistance program and 21st Century Learning Centers for at-risk youth. We have much work to do!
