A Fair Start for Early Learners

SB-5321 expanding access to the College Bound Scholarship passed the Senate Ways & Means Committee late Friday night ahead of today’s Fiscal cutoff. The bill now heads to the Rules Committee where it waits it’s turn for a Floor vote. Thank you to all the advocates who took the time to lend their voice to this important issue!


This week, we join our partners at Project Child Success and Washington Communities for Children in highlighting the need for increased investments in early learning across the state. See below to learn more about this issue and explore our Elevate Tacoma toolkit for opportunities to engage.
