Thank you to all advocates who attended, rallied, and met with their legislators!
Purpose of Focus Day
Focus Day is intended to serve as focal point for WSPTA's legislative advocacy. We know that the best advocacy programs are year-round. The intent of Focus Day is not to serve as an end unto itself; rather it is a day to bring WSPTA members to Olympia to sharpen the picture of how our advocacy efforts need to proceed. It's a day of training, education, meetings with legislators, and other activities that help members engage directly in the legislative process.
Education is a Civil Right rally on the capitol steps. WSPTA was a co-sponsor of this event and Barbara Martin, Washington State PTA Board President, was one of the speakers along with Washington Education Association (WEA), students, teachers, etc. Watch Barbara speak to 5,500 advocates during the rally here.
