WEA-Riverside is the regional council comprised of fifteen local education associations representing over 4,600 professional and classified educators working in Southwest Washington. Collectively we represent K-12 certificated educators, higher education faculty and staff, educational support professionals, retired educators and college students preparing to become teachers.

Education is a social process.  Education is growth.  Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.  - John Dewey


  • WEA-Riverside at Vancouver Pride

    WEA-Riverside is proud to announce that we will host a booth at the Vancouver, Saturday in the Park Pride event again this year. The event will take on Saturday, July 13th, from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. The booth will display inclusive children’s books and have drawings for the chance to take home educator and student-made art. Visitors to the booth will have the opportunity to write notes to past educators thanking them for being welcoming; or to school boards to support inclusive school policies around belonging and discrimination.

    If you’d be interested in volunteering for a shift at our booth, bringing treats to our volunteers, or just coming by, then consider this a Save the Date! You can sign up now to volunteer by using this form to let us know what time(s) you would be interested in.

    In addition to volunteering, you can also support us by donating artwork or other swag for our giveaways. In the past, we’ve had stained glass, crocheted hats, and awesome books for giveaways. If you’d be interested in donating swag, please let us know!

    Thank you for all you do for your students, community, and each other!
