Thank you for stepping up to advocate for kids! WSPTA is offering multiple opportunities to LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
IN PERSON AT FOCUS DAY – Monday, January 29 9am – 2pm – Come to Olympia to meet with legislators about WSPTA-supported issues and let them know what is important to you! Focus Day 2018 is for connecting with your legislators – no rally or speeches this year. Find which Legislative Districts represent your school district on this map, and find those legislators here.
On Focus Day, come to the Pritchard cafeteria (circled), where members of the WSPTA Legislative Committee will greet you and provide our 2018 Legislative Priorities handout, Focus Day Postcards, and campus maps to help make your day successful.
Also on the our advocacy page, you will find a detailed “Issue one-page handout” for each Priority in the drop-down lists under “Legislative Platform.” These one-page handouts are great sources of talking points and can be given to legislators as well.
There are additional resources for coming to Olympia at the end of this email.
ADVOCACY WEEK, January 29 – February 4, is a great opportunity to contact legislators in other ways:
Thank you again for speaking on behalf of the 1.1 million public school students in Washington!
