We hope you can join us for the Investing in Student Potential coalition’s Virtual Advocacy Week beginning next Tuesday, February 2nd. Meet with legislators, learn how to tell your story, get involved in the legislative process, and more! You can sign up at the Investing in Student Potential website. League of Education Voters is a convening partner of the Investing in Student Potential coalition, which advocates for the 170,000 students who need special education services. Together, we will support a better future for students in Washington state.
