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
