2013 Legislator Town Halls

Speak up for Higher Education:  March 16th, 23rd, or 30th

The state has cut funding to the UW by 50% over the past three years. This year we have a chance to restore funding so that we can fund TA positions, stop tuition hikes, and retain our world-class faculty. But we need you to speak up! The Washington legislature is half-way through its session, and the state budget will be released later this month. Over the next two weeks almost every state legislator will be holding a Town Hall in their district. Town halls are a rare opportunity to speak directly with our representative and influence priorities in Olympia for years to come. Legislators will be making important budget decisions that will affect students directly; they need to hear from all of us about the importance of funding higher education. If you can attend or would like more information, please contact Brian Moe: gpssorgd@uw.edu. Don't know your district? Click here to find out.

At the Town Hall:  Please ask your representatives if they will vote to restore funding to higher education.  Tell them why it's important to you.
