What is Advocacy?
PTA advocacy is supporting and speaking up for children—in schools, in communities, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children.
HCC PTA is committed to assisting in your advocacy efforts—there is power in united voices. Examples of advocacy:
Discuss a topic of importance to your school with leaders
Host an educational event at your school on an issue
Attend a school board meeting
Work to implement strong family engagement policies
Write a letter to the editor
The VA PTA legislative priorities have not changed from previous years. Therefore, there are not proposed legislative policies (PLPs) requiring additional membership approval in the Fall 2020.
