League Road Trip for Education on May 23

Calling all League members who care about education! The League is partnering with our Voices of Democracy Gala sponsor, the Washington Education Association (WEA), to lobby legislators in Olympia on Tuesday, May 23.

The day starts between 9 and 9:30 a.m. with a briefing on the north stairs of the legislative building, and ends around 1:30 or 2 p.m. (maybe later if the legislators are at the Capitol to close the session out). Box lunch will be provided by the Seattle Education Association, but it is recommended that you bring a water bottle with you.

WEA is hoping to have a huge presence to draw media attention to the lack of education funding in our state, so let's help them out! We already have several League members putting together a carpool, but we need more volunteers to make it a media-worthy event. Please email Stephanie Cirkovich at outreach@seattlelwv.org if you're interested in joining a carpool or if you are available to drive other members.

Past participants of this event have lined the hallways leading to bill signing and committee meetings, met with legislators, sat in galleries, and even sang songs in the rotunda. Please join the League for this fun event and support a worthy cause!
