Our coalition is comprised of long-time community members and public education supporters. We send our children to Tacoma Public Schools, volunteer in the classrooms, tutor in after-school programs, knock on doors for school bonds and levy campaigns and employ the graduates. We unite together to advocate for our children and support teachers as professionals through a constructive and collaborative approach.
