Ask people to join with us because:

As a child advocacy association, our legislative mission is to speak on behalf of all children and youth at the local, state and federal levels. One of the purposes of PTA is “to secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.” PTA promotes and encourages legislative advocacy for the education and welfare of all children and youth.
PTA legislative advocacy chairs are responsible for providing leadership on children’s issues at the local level by educating PTA members, community members and elected officials about PTA’s issues of concern and legislative priorities and goals.
