LWPTSA Council at WSPTA Focus Day: Feb. 20, 2023

Washington State PTA recently announced changes to the schedule for 2023 Focus Day. Focus Day is an opportunity for PTA members to advocate with our state elected officials, and to share the WSPTA Legislative Priorities for the session. There are three main ways to participate this year:

  • Sign up up to get action alerts through the WSPTA Action Alert Network: You will get emails with updates from the legislative session and links to quick, online actions you can take to support our priorities. This will be particularly active during Focus on Action Week, which now takes place Feb. 6–10.
  • Attend Focus Day in person in Olympia! WSPTA has reserved the Columbia Room in the Legislative Building on Feb. 20. The event will kick off around 9:30 am, and will include several guest speakers and opportunities to tour the capitol. The WSPTA website should have more details soon. They are encouraging participants to consider wearing PTA blue if attending in person.
  • Schedule a meeting with your elected officials to share our PTA Legislative Platform! This can be done either in person (on Focus Day), or virtually (ideally between Feb. 1–20). If you are interested in scheduling a meeting, please contact Advocacy@LWPTSA.net to coordinate before sending a meeting request. WSPTA asks that all meeting requests be sent by Jan. 27 if possible.

If you have any questions about Focus Day, or how to get involved with advocacy, please contact Council Advocacy VP Kristen Dorwin (Advocacy@LWPTSA.net).
