It took years of work together – and we did it! The cut to State Food Assistance is over!
The cut unfairly burdened immigrant families - primarily in communities of color - with hunger and economic hard times. Families and advocates spoke up courageously and persistently for five years! Advocacy worked! The cut is ended and families' food assistance is restored
It’s a reason to celebrate! Families, community leaders and state legislators who helped make this victory possible will be at this event. Everyone is welcome.
Advocacy works, and it’s takes all of us to win the change that Washington’s kids and communities are counting on. You are invited to power up your advocacy skills at a one-day Leadership in Advocacy Training.
