Want to keep kids from getting the short end of the state-budget stick? Take part in a crazy dance party right in front of the Governor's office! The dedicated, persistent and incredibly creative moms and dads of MomsRising are behind this event, designed to send a message to state legislators. Oh, and the band: Caspar Babypants!
"We moms & kids may not have high-powered lobbyists buying politicians fancy lunches every day, but we have something much better -- thousands of families across the state who are committed to giving Washington children a great start," says the MomsRising press release. "And what better way to make an impact on our legislators than a sing-along-dance-party with kids in the stuffy Capitol?
"Picture it: babies, toddlers, preschoolers, big kids, parents, and teachers all dancing and singing in the rotunda. Unforgettable, right? Our first-ever Capitol dance party in Olympia is sure to stand out. But to make a big statement we've got to have a big crowd -- so join us and help make sure the legislature is all humming the same tune for families!
State Capitol dome rotunda, 3:30pm on Friday, February 5th! Don't forget to RSVP.
