Have a Heart for Kids Day rally, 2015

2020 Legislative Agenda

At Children’s Alliance, we believe every child can thrive in a world rich with opportunity. We partner with public officials, parents and community leaders to create strategies that help kids overcome the barriers of racism and poverty.

In the 2020 legislative session, lawmakers can work in three key areas to build the strong, shared future every child deserves:

Early Learning

Early investments pay lifelong dividends. Adopt and sustainably fund policies to expand access to high quality, culturally relevant opportunities for babies, toddlers and preschool-age children.

Health Care for Kids and Families

Oral health is vital to overall health, but many Washingtonians don’t have access to dental care. Expand dental therapy to improve health equity and bring urgently needed oral health care to kids and families statewide.

Revenue to Invest in Kids

Kids and families count on strong public investments in good times and bad. Close wasteful tax breaks and adopt new sources of revenue, including a capital gains tax.
