Questions to Ask Candidates for the Washington State Legislature

State lawmakers can take important steps to improve kids’ lives in the 2019 state legislative session. Candidates for the Washington state legislature will make critical choices for our kids if they are elected in November. Their choices can help kids have great childhoods and grow up strong, and advance racial equity and opportunity for all our kids. Here are five questions for candidates for the state legislature about Children’s Alliance 2019 priorities for Washington’s children, youth and families. 

2019 Legislative Agenda

We believe in the potential of every child. Poverty and racism erode kids’ opportunities. Our 2019 legislative agenda (PDF) reflects smart public policies that remove barriers and create opportunity—so all kids can thrive.

Early Learning to Help Kids Succeed: More infants, toddlers and preschool-age children should have the quality experiences that set them up for success in school. 

2018 Legislative Review

In the 2018 legislative session, Children’s Alliance led our many partners across Washington to advocate for good public policy—laws and public investments that create opportunity for Washington’s children.

Testimonials from across the state: “How is Apple Health for Kids vital to you, your kids, or your community?”

“I work at WIC in Whatcom County; almost all the kids we see have Apple Health. We help parents keep up to date with getting well-child checks, immunizations and dental care for the kids. Parents and kids need access to medical and dental care to address issues before they become problems. Healthy kids become healthy adults, and that makes a healthy community.”

—Wendy Porter, Sumas
