For the past three years, BrightSpark’s Advocacy Team has organized district-specific Advocacy Pods, which bring together members of the early learning community from one distrtict to meet with their elected officials.
Advocacy Pods are made up of early child care stakeholders – from BrightSpark staff, to families, caregivers, and providers – who share a passion for advocacy. Advocacy Pods connect with their district’s elected officials leading up to legislative session to provide valuable context, stories, and solutions to those who can make a difference in Olympia.
Looking ahead to the 2024 legislative session, BrightSpark’s Advocacy team created a short kick-off informational session for Advocacy Pod members as they prepare to share their input and experiences with lawmakers. Hosted by Mobilization Coordinator, Jaymie McLaughlin, the kick-off session covered everything from how to relay information to legislators to important vocabulary words every advocate can benefit from knowing.
