Our 2016 Legislative Agenda


End Childhood Hunger

Here in Washington, one in five children lives in a household that doesn’t have enough to eat. Childhood food insecurity disproportionately impacts children of color, and it undermines a child’s educational progress. Fight childhood hunger, including strategies to increase family economic security such as restoring Temporary Assistance for Needy Families.


Invest in Early Learning

2016 Legislative Session


The 2016 Legislature convened at the Washington State Capitol on Monday, January 11 and adjourned Friday, March 11.


This 60-day session is shorter than those that take place in odd-numbered years, but no matter the duration, the laws passed in any session have enormous potential to help—or hurt—Washington’s kids.

That’s why each year we advocate with persistence and passion to protect kids and build a better future for all.
