Today marks the one year anniversary of the tragic Parkland shooting in Florida. On February 14, 2018, a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School killing seventeen students and staff and injuring many others.

Washington legislators are considering school safety bills right now. Don't let them forget Parkland, tell your legislators that when it comes to school safety, student supports and access to mental health services are key.
