We have a responsibility to our children to fully fund education without defunding the safety net for our most vulnerable neighbors.
Supporters of the Children's Campaign Fund: We are calling on you to take another step in advocacy for the children of Washington.
Write a letter to the editor of your hometown newspaper! Make your voice heard!
The next legislative session will be focused on the money available for fully funding education for our children. We need legislators who will address this issue without cutting programs that support those same vulnerable children and their families.
Please consider writing a letter to your editor, asking for the elected officials to work on new revenue options. Ask voters to take this into consideration with their vote and support those who will look for ways to fully fund K-12 education, early Learning and higher education and our social services system. These are critical decisions that WILL shape the future for Washington's children.
Our children cannot vote and this is the time to speak up for them.
