— The Washington Federation of Republican Women met for their annual spring board meeting recently.

One of the keynote speakers was former Bremerton High School assistant football coach Joseph Kennedy.

In a lawsuit, Kennedy alleges he was fired because he would kneel after football games and pray.

In 2016 a law firm, First Liberty Institute, filed suit on the coach's behalf for violations of his 1st Amendment rights; the case is headed to the state Supreme Court, he said.
