Take Action for Public Education!

Two easy actions you can do right now to prevent DeVos-style education proposals from coming to Washington state. 

1) Send a message! To your legislators to support Governor Jay Inslee’s education budget and oppose the Senate Republicans’ reckless and punitive proposal. Click here for more information. 

2) Attend an education funding forum in your community

Education is a civil right, defined as the state’s paramount duty under Washington’s constitution, and affirmed by our state Supreme Court in the McCleary case. Time is running out to meet the McCleary promise. Join us in welcoming local area legislators in a conversation to support our students and our public schools.

These events are organized by local WEA members, unless otherwise noted. All students, parents and public school supporters are invited.
