Closing the Educational Opportunity Gap- Out of Office Signing: March 30th @1:30 PM

Please Join Governor Jay Inslee for the signing of House Bill 1541: Implementing strategies to Close the Educational Opportunity Gap. The bill was based on the recommendations of the educational opportunity gap oversight and accountability committee. Bill Sponsors: Santos, Ortiz-Self, Tharinger, Orwall, Moscoso, Gregerson

This bill addresses structural problems within the educational system that disproportionately affects students of color and reduces their opportunities to excel academically. Specifically, the disconnect between students of color and their educators; the disconnect between schools and families of students of color. As well, the bill centers on student discipline reform and the lack of quality student demographic data needed by policymakers.

When: Wednesday, March 30th from 1:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Where: Aki Kurose Middle School, Library: 3928 South Graham St, Seattle, WA 98118

Voter Registration & Community Outreach

Overview
11am – 12pm Continental breakfast and Community Building
12m – 1pm Canvass Training
1pm – 4pm Neighbor to neighbor outreach
4pm – 5pm Food, Raffles, and Closing

Calling all college students, recent grads, and young and seasoned professionals of Seattle. We are looking for people to join us on Saturday, Sept 19th in our efforts to increase civic engagement in our communities by registering people to vote, one neighborhood at a time!

Our goal is to improve the conditions of Seattle’s most disadvantaged communities. By mobilizing our community members, specifically low-income families, people of color, and immigrants, to participate civically, we are one step closer to achieving quality education, health and social services, safe and clean streets, affordable housing, and a thriving local economy.

This is a great opportunity to serve your community, learn about grassroots organizing, and earn volunteer hours. We will be providing breakfast, snacks, and light dinner. At the end, raffle prizes will be given out, the more friends you bring the higher your chances are of winning.
