About LEV

LEV is a statewide organization with headquarters in Seattle and offices in Spokane and Pasco. Since 2001, we have been working to improve opportunities for every public school student in the state, especially students and families who are systemically underserved and disproportionately affected by failing systems.

Our Approach and Accomplishments: With strength in policy research, analysis, and advocacy, LEV’s work includes lobbying in the Washington state capitol as well as organizing ballot initiatives and field campaigns to support the public policy engagement of students and families. Our work has included: increasing state investment in early childhood, K-12, and post-secondary education; advocating for a more equitable, statewide, student-focused funding system; enhancing the rigor of the high school diploma; and supporting charter public schools.

Our Next Chapter: LEV is committed to a reimagined education system that meets the needs of every student — addressing systemic barriers to student engagement, achievement, and access to a high-quality education. As an education thought leader, innovator, and collaborator, we are expanding our community-engaged advocacy by developing community-informed, targeted policy solutions to benefit students impacted by racism, poverty, disability discrimination, and other forms of oppression.
