Maywood PTSA 2.6.40

ADVOCACY WEEK is February 22 – 26, 2021

Thank you for stepping up to advocate for kids!  WSPTA is offering multiple opportunities to LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!  

IN PERSON AT FOCUS DAY – (Tentatively) Monday, January 18, 2021 8am – 5pm – Come to Olympia to meet with legislators about WSPTA-supported issues and let them know what is important to you! Focus Day is for connecting with your legislators – no rally or speeches this year.  

Stay tuned for more information about the details and format of this event.  Contact to participate.

Also on the our advocacy page, you will find a detailed “Issue one-page handout” for each Priority in the drop-down lists under “Legislative Platform.”  These one-page handouts are great sources of talking points and can be given to legislators as well.

ADVOCACY WEEK, February 22 – 26,2021 is a great opportunity to contact legislators in other ways, especially if coming to Olympia is inconvenient:

Don't know who your legislators are?  You are likely in State Legislative District 5 or here to confirm who your state legislators are!

  • Got 2 minutes? Reply to a VOTER VOICE Action Alert. 
  • Got 5 minutes? Find names of the legislators who represent your school district and call the Legislative Hotline to leave them a message:  1-800-562-6000
  • Got 10 minutes? Download, print, and mail a postcard to legislators. Find the postcards on our advocacy page. Find mailing addresses for members of the House here and Senators here.
  • Got 15 minutes? Send a personalized email to legislators telling them your story and why you care about PTA Priorities.

WSPTA will have a new Priority topic every day during Advocacy Week.  Follow Washington State PTA on Facebook, and check the WSPTA Blog to get weekly updates on WSPTA Priorities and bills.

Thank you again for speaking on behalf of the 1.1 million public school students in Washington!
