We are now less than twenty-four hours away from our twelfth Spring Fundraising Gala, taking place exclusively online due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. We’ve worked hard to put a great speaking program together, and we hope you can join us for an uplifting evening of progressive activism.
Previously, we announced that State Senator Manka Dhingra would be our Master of Ceremonies and that Redmond City Councilmember Varisha Khan and State Superintendent Chris Reykdal would be among our featured speakers.
Tonight, we’re pleased to announce that State Senator Claire Wilson (D‑30th District: Federal Way) will be joining us as well.
First elected in 2018, Senator Wilson has been a dependable champion for progressive causes as the 30th District’s voice in the State Senate.
She prime sponsored Superintendent Reykdal’s comprehensive sexual health education bill, a major 2020 NPI legislative priority, which was recently signed into law by Governor Jay Inslee. She has also developed legislation to improve access to childcare and prohibit the solitary confinement of youths while in jail.
Because of Senator Wilson’s work, Washington’s young people are safer and have better access to information needed to make healthy decisions.
We are deeply appreciative of Senator Wilson’s great work and we’re looking forward to hearing her perspective on the recently concluded legislative session tomorrow evening. We invite you to join us online as we hold our annual Spring Fundraising Gala for the twelfth time, in a brand new incarnation.
