2018 Legislative Session
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.
Children’s Alliance members and staff joined parents, advocates, policymakers and families from across the state on Thursday, March 22 to witness the signing of Senate Bill 5683, delivering needed access to health care to Washington residents from three Pacific Island nations.
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.
We all have a stake in the basic services and supports that help Washington’s kids. We count on programs and services, quality schools, health care and other public goods that make Washington great. Our shared investments contribute to quality early learning, child nutrition, and other services and supports that let kids thrive.
Parents, grandparents, advocates and health care professionals told state legislators Monday, January 15 about the immense cost of withholding health care coverage from some Washington residents—and the better future lawmakers can make possible.
Children’s Alliance proudly supports Initiative 940. It’s good for kids and public safety.
