Seattle Parents Town Hall with Senator Patty Murray

A recording of this event is available at:


Senator Patty Murry is holding a virtual Seattle Parents Town Hall on January 26th at 5:00 PM.

It will be broadcast live on Facebook, and you can tune in at this link. She will be joining with MomsRising, a mom-run grassroots organization working toward a more family friendly country.

From Senator Murray:

I’ll give you a straight forward update on my work in the other Washington about everything that’s top of mind for parents right now: the cost and availability of child care, what’s being done to keep our kids in school safely, and other important priorities like the expanded Child Tax Credit.  

And most importantly, I’ll be taking your questions on the issues that matter most to you and your family. I’ll be taking questions in advance and I’ll also be taking questions live on Facebook. You can submit your questions in advance HERE.

As a mother and a grandmother, this is one of the toughest times to be a parent I can remember—child care is costly and tough to come by, the uncertainty of schooling during a pandemic can make you want to pull your hair out (not to mention how hard it’s been on our kids), and so many families are struggling to just find their footing. I want you to know I am really focused on concrete steps I can take in Congress that will make life better and easier for you and your families.

I hope you’ll be able to join me for Wednesday’s town hall to hear more about that work, like my proposal to make child care affordable and available for every working family and to make free preschool available to every parent who wants it.

Patty Murray
U.S. Senator for Washington state
