WSPAC parents meet with Rep. Ruth Kagi to discuss the Washington State Parent Advocacy Committee's legislative agenda for 2015.
Our actions, along with the hard work of other advocates and organizations contributed to the passage of the following:
SB 5486 which provides funding to sustain and expand the Parents for Parents Programs that serve families in the child welfare dependency court system.
The WSPAC brings the parent voice into the development of child welfare policy and practice; promotes improved and equitable outcomes for all children and parents regardless of their race, gender, or circumstance; and advocates for parent leadership in the direct service, training, and public awareness activities that strengthen and support those families.
