Our Coalition

We are a diverse group of education advocates, parents, community leaders and fighters for equity.

First and foremost, we believe in a Washington in which all students, regardless of background, have access to a world-class education. We are on the frontlines fighting for what’s right because right now, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to ensure our kids get the education they deserve.

Our approach is oriented around a simple question: What’s best for our kids? We are guided by principles that champion all Washington students. We are advocating for real, sustainable change with the power to benefit all Washington kids for generations – not a band aid fix or empty promise.
