Advocacy is at the heart of what we do by empowering students and our members to have a voice at local and state levels in matters that focus on the health, well-being and safety of our children. 



We work to represent the needs of our community when defining legislative priorities. We also work to raise awareness and encourage our community to have a voice with respect to legislation that aligns with WA State PTA's Legislative Platform.

Contact our Legislative Chair for more information.
