Item: After years of trying, advocates pass law extending statute of limitations in child sex crimes…/Rich Roesler, Eye On Olympia
DFO: Put your hands together for HBO newby Beth Bollinger, a Spokane attorney who pushed tirelessly for the passage of this bill. Writes Rich Roesler: "In February, Bollinger went to Olympia to testify on behalf of the change. Abuse victims feel shame and isolation, she and other advocates told the Senate Judiciary Committee, and even 28 is a pretty early age for someone to step forward and reveal past abuse." Beth writes about her experience here.
Question: Have you ever testified in front of a legislative committee or lobbied for a change in the law? Can you describe your experience?
