Join us tomorrow at the Rally for Student Civil Rights and Amply Funded Schools!

It is the para­mount duty of the state to make ample pro­vi­sion for the edu­ca­tion of all chil­dren resid­ing with­in its bor­ders, with­out dis­tinc­tion or pref­er­ence on account of race, col­or, caste, or sex.

– Wash­ing­ton State Con­sti­tu­tion, Arti­cle IX, Sec­tion 1

Read­ers!

Do you believe in the Con­sti­tu­tion of Wash­ing­ton State?

Do you believe that all of our youth deserve a great edu­ca­tion?

Do you believe that pub­lic schools are a essen­tial ser­vice that must be ful­ly fund­ed, so that every child in our state has the oppor­tu­ni­ty to gain the skills and knowl­edge they need to con­tribute to the well being of our demo­c­ra­t­ic soci­ety?

Then join us tomor­row as we ral­ly in Olympia for our stu­dents and schools!

What: The Ral­ly for Stu­dent Civ­il Rights and Amply Fund­ed Pub­lic Schools
When: Jan­u­ary 16th, 2017, 10:30 to 11:30 AM
Where: Steps of the Leg­isla­tive Build­ing (north entrance, fac­ing Tem­ple of Jus­tice)

We are very proud to join with NAACP, Washington’s Para­mount Duty, the League of Women Vot­ers of Wash­ing­ton, El Cen­tro de la Raza, Wash­ing­ton Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion, Wash­ing­ton State PTA, Pub­lic School Employ­ees, SEIU, School Nurs­es of Wash­ing­ton, Wash­ing­ton Asso­ci­a­tion of School Social Work­ers, Class Size Counts, and Wash­ing­ton School Coun­selors Asso­ci­a­tion in spon­sor­ing this ral­ly.

There is no bet­ter occa­sion than Mar­tin Luther King Jr. Day to ral­ly for a great cause like stu­dent civ­il rights and amply fund­ed schools.

We hope you’ll join us and be inspired to work for change in our state.
