Dear Friend,

It's almost here!

Tomorrow, February 7th at Have a Heart for Kids Day, we are going to fill the halls of the State Capitol in Olympia to call for bold action for Washington kids! Together we will call on state lawmakers to protect our kids now, and in the future. 

Can't join us but still want to support this day of action? Make a gift!

In November, Washington voters pushed the number of child advocates serving in the Legislature toward critical mass. These newly elected representatives joined with others who took office before, equipped with years of experience in figuring out how to make systems work better for families. And now, they are here. To be effective, they count on the collective expertise of leaders like YOU.

Together, our bold action can help topple and remove the barriers kids face.

Can't make it to Have a Heart for Kids Day? You can still help bring powerful advocates for kids to lawmakers' offices across the capitol by making a gift!

Connecting child advocates to their lawmakers is one of the most powerful things Children’s Alliance does to move the racially equitable policies and investments that serve all of Washington’s 1.6 million kids. Because of you, legislators will get critical information about what matters to kids and families and how policies affect real families.
Make your gift today!

Thank you for speaking up for kids.

Deputy Director
