Save the Date: *Virtual* Legislative Assembly 

October 24-25, 2020

WSPTA is one of the only state PTAs that is truly grassroots – our advocacy positions come from you, our members. Members have submitted new resolutions, legislative principles, and issues, and it is important that members have the opportunity to amend, debate and vote on which become positions of WSPTA. Voting delegates will adopt new positions, the two-year legislative platform and top 5 legislative priorities.

PTA Advocates for All Children

Did you know that PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy organization in the country? Since inception in 1905, PTA has been a driving force behind the creation of kindergarten, hot lunch programs, early education, and so much more. PTA advocates on behalf of all children on the important issues impacting education, health, and safety.

PTA Advocacy can be as simple as being informed on the issues or can be expanded to include attending and speaking at school board meetings, sending letters and meeting with your legislators, attending the PTA Focus Day Rally, or testifying in front of the state legislature to put a face on important issues.
