Tell your lawmakers to protect the civil liberties of ALL people in our state and support Senate Bill 5173 and its companion bill in the house, House Bill 1744. This policy will allow people of faith and religious backgrounds all over Washington State to take days off to celebrate their religious holidays. Currently, most minority faith communities are not permitted to take days off from school or work to honor their holidays when they don't align with the Gregorian calendar.

SB 5173 and HB 1744 will allow students (K-12 and college) excused absences for religious purposes and give them the opportunity to make up work when absent for reasons of faith/religion in school.


SB 5173 and HB 1744 will allow employees of faith to be exempt from work for up to 3 days (1 paid day and 2 non-paid days) for celebrating their religious holidays.

Please sign with your name and address. Thank you!
