The 2024 state legislative session is underway, and we can start strong by letting our elected officials know that Washington thrives when we invest in kids.
We’re Empowering Citizens of Washington to Be the Voice for Kids
The voters in Washington state overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development. We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.

Investments in child care and early education not only have long-term benefits for children, but they also have effects that ripple out into the community, improving economic and social outcomes for everyone.
