LEAVENWORTH 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.
