Advocacy for Children and Families
“One of the most important roles of California State PTA is to create and support laws that improve the lives of all California children. Our advocacy goal is to represent, inform and mobilize members and the public to advocate for the education, health, safety and well-being of all children.”
Fourth District PTA publishes a monthly newsletter, the Advocacy Communicator.
The April 2020 edition is linked below and covers:
California State PTA positions on recent bills
What the federal relief bill means for schools
The California Lottery has been shortchanging schools
How school district superintendents are dealing with the crisis
The National PTA provides resources to find and contact your elected officials, look up federal legislation, learn more about about National PTA's positions on issues impacting children, families and schools, and additional advocacy resources to learn how you can be an advocate for every child.
Our Irvine Unified Council PTA site includes local advocacy updates, forums and more!
