Re: Laws/Pending Legislation

Jim Sporleder ·
Washington State is a strong national leader in our work around ACEs and public awareness. We see trauma informed practice in our social agencies within our communities.

When I confronted the issue in 2013, the legislators would not confirm the ACE Study. To date, Washington State has forced over 8,000 students...

Tory Henderson ·
Our goal as an agency is to get 90% of Washington’s children to be “ready for kindergarten,” and to have race and family income not be predictors of readiness. About 20% of Washington’s children are in families at or below 110% of the federal poverty level (FPL,) or about $24,000 for a family of four. These young people face many challenges in life and are a key part of any rational economic strategy for the state, as well as being part of the paramount duty enshrined in Washington’s...
