Take Action for Public Education!

Three easy actions you can take 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.

Many of these events are organized by local WEA members, and parents from Washington’s Paramount Duty, unless otherwise noted. All students, parents and public school supporters are invited. See the list below;

3) Can’t attend in person? Join the Social Media Town Hall

It’s easy – all you need to do is add a post on your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account that says:

I support Governor Inslee’s education budget. It is the only one that meets the McCleary Promise for students & educators. #waleg #waedu

Post this weekend (March 10 – 12) for maximum impact and encourage your friends to do so too. If you include a picture, make sure to wear red for public education!
