We are dedicated to electing state leaders who will champion the health, well-being, safety, and learning and development of the children and youth of Washington State, especially those who are under-resourced and have been historically marginalized. We provide a non-partisan, collective voice for the people of Washington to elect state leaders who will prioritize children and their families, represent the communities they serve, and expect to be held accountable.

Washington State prioritizes investments in a thriving present and future for every child and their family, particularly those impacted by racism and poverty. All state leaders recognize that providing for the health, well-being, safety, and learning and development of our children is not optional – it is vital.
