Together with the support and action of Children's Alliance members like you, we made major progress for kids this year! Please join us at our Annual Meeting in Seattle on Thursday, December 3rd.
This free event features a light breakfast, a chance to look ahead to what's next for advocacy for kids in 2016, and a policy dialogue in two parts:
After the Bill is Signed: Racial Equity and Early Learning in the Early Start Act
Advocacy does not end the day the Governor signs a bill! You are invited to join in a dialogue with two advocates working now to capture the full potential of the Early Start Act as a tool for racial equity and opportunity for all Washington's children.
