WE DID IT!! 🥳
Over 300 advocates wrote letters, met with your legislators, and testified in front of committees to urge our lawmakers' support of legislation that will impact students lives right now. Thanks to your efforts, the Washington House of Representatives just voted 82-16 to pass SB 5030, which will protect school counselors' time and ensure that every student gets the support they need when they need it most.
Thank you for standing up for students with us - we could not do it alone. Your efforts and advocacy made the difference.
It is also thanks to the bipartisan sponsorship and support of Senators and Representatives on both side of the aisle that this bill made it through both chambers of the legislature. As part of our celebration, we'd like to invite you to join us in saying thank you to these lawmakers for supporting SB 5030.
Together, we can do incredible things! There are still two weeks left in session, and we're not done yet. We'll keep you updated on upcoming opportunities to take action to make even more impact for students this year.
Thank you again for all you've done.
Standing with you,
The Stand for Children Washington team
