Candidate for Governor Dave Reichert Responds to ACLU Attack on Parents Rights

May 24, 2024

Bellevue, WA— Yesterday, the ACLU sued Washington to block the recently passed voter Initiative 2081. The “Parents Bill of Rights,” was passed by the state legislature on a bipartisan basis earlier this year. Implementation of the law goes into effect on June 6.


Former King County Sheriff and congressman, Dave Reichert, issued a statement and charge to Attorney General Bob Ferguson following the ACLU’s lawsuit against Washington families:


“The people of Washington spoke through the initiative process and their voices were heard by our legislature,” said Reichert. “The legislature passed this law protecting the rights of parents and children. Will AG Bob Ferguson do his job and uphold the law and voice of the people to protect these rights? Or will he side with the ACLU?”
