Fix Hirst Demonstration


On February 28, organizations impacted by the Hirst ruling staged a "Fix Hirst" demonstration at Olympia's capitol in their continued effort to push for a fix to the Hirst court ruling, which has virtually eliminated water access to build new homes in rural communities and halted the construction of nearly all basic housing in those areas.

The demonstrators distributed empty water bottles to legislators with a "message in a bottle" about Hirst to symbolically show how no water for housing is having an impact on families, small businesses and communities.
