Why We Fight

A college education empowers students to create a healthy, just, and prosperous future for themselves and our state. No matter our income, race, age, or documentation, all students in Washington have the right to quality higher education without taking on a lifetime of debt. Washington is home to world-class schools whose graduates are the drivers of our economy.

By uniting across our various backgrounds and campuses, students can hold those in power accountable to making higher education debt-free and welcoming for all.

On Campus

The WSA's 150,000 members are on 15 campuses across the state, at every public four year university. Our members and chapter organizations work to organize and mobilize students 365 days a year!
