Have a Heart for Kids Day 2020

Action Center

Children's Alliance is committed to working alongside our members and communities to advance public policies, priorities, and programs that enable all of Washington's kids and families to thrive. 

Your voice is powerful. You can raise it by taking action on the issues below and telling your legislators what's important to you.

The 2022 legislative session is mostly remote, making it more accessible than ever for advocates from across the state to have our voices heard in Olympia. Check out our guides for more information on how you can get involved this session.

Make Your Voice Heard in the Local Press

Letters to the editor (LTE) are important tools for advocates like you. They influence the press’s coverage of issues facing Washington’s kids and families; legislators read them; and they raise public awareness among fellow readers in your area. Our LTE guides include tips for letter writing, a sample letter, and a list of news outlets from across the state to which you can send your letters.

Right now, too many Washingtonians do not have access to essential methods for improving dental health, like access to oral health care and fluoride in drinking water. Tell lawmakers we need to change that!
