The work that we do to improve public education is only possible thanks to the support of our activists and advocates—the parents, community members, students, and teachers who stand up and speak up. In order to recognize the difficult work that so many of our supporters do on behalf of all Washington students, the League of Education Voters began spotlighting the work of our “activists of the month” in late 2013.
Our activists of the month were selected for going above and beyond in their work for Washington students—in organizing, in testimony, in advocacy, and more. Before we break for the summer, we wanted to draw your attention to these activists once more.
With the release of our 2014 annual report, we wanted to take a moment to thank all of our activists around the state. For every activist of the month that we profile, there are dozens of others who have also taken a stand to improve public education in Washington state.
