Join us for a workshop to learn about the most effective ways to communicate education-related interests to the legislature. Learn more about political development, and watch for news about developments such as the McCleary Decision, ballot initiatives that are on the November 4, 2014 ballot, which are:

Washington Class Size Reduction Measure Initiative 1351

We’ll also host a Night with your Legislators, where you can meet local legislators for an evening devoted to education policy.
