Calling all Indivisiblers! Washington Legislature is in session and there are bills up for hearing which defend and strengthen democratic institutions and progressive values. This is your chance to be a legislative rock star. Please look at our Facebook page under the Events category for information about upcoming bills and how to testify. Do good! You’ll feel good!
Here is what OI member Madeline had to say January 8, 2018 in her testimony before the House Committee on Education on behalf of HB 1896 Expanding civics education in public schools (sponsored by OI member and LD 22 Representative, Laurie Dolan!).
“I am Madeline Bishop and I live in the second legislative district. I am representing myself and come here out of concern for my 13 grandchildren and all Washington citizens. I support HB1896 because in order for democracy to flourish citizens must be informed and introduced to the political process.
I approve of my tax dollars being spent Expanding civics education in public schools and would happily pay more for good schools for Washington. Thank you.”
Thanks, Madeline, you rock!
You, dear reader, can still comment in support of this bill!
