Advocacy

PTA began in 1897 as the National Congress of Mothers  with the mission to eliminate threats that endangered children. In the years since, PTA has taken a stand on such issues as school lunch, child labor laws, creation of kindergarten, juvenile justice, immunization, arts in education and school safety.

PTA continues to encourage members to advocate for children. Advocacy can take many forms, including writing to legislators, raising awareness of a cause through events, or even just discussing an issue with friends. These tools can be of help to you in advocating for all children.
