The Niagara Region PTA has a long-held commitment to advocacy and we continue to urge our members to raise their voices to speak up for children. Together we work for a common purpose: to secure adequate laws, regulations and policies for the care and protection of children and youth. To achieve this objective the PTA advocates bring critical issues that affect the education, health and welfare of children and youth before the public, policy makers and elected officials. Connecting our 30 grass-root units and 2 councils, the Niagara Region PTA shares with the state Board of Directors and National PTA the belief that:
“Advocacy is at the heart of PTA's mission and vision. Taking action provides both parents and PTA leaders with the resources to become more involved with their community at home and their community across the nation.”
Excerpted from National PTA website: http://www.pta.org/take_action.asp
It is our hope that PTA members and advocacy partners will use this site to learn about the Niagara Region PTA's current basic policy, positions, directives, issues and advocacy efforts and link these to their own advocacy efforts at the grassroots level.
While we speak for every child with one voice, the more voices the louder the chorus! Join us to keep the advocacy flame burning and sustain the legacy ofadvocacy in Western NY. In doing so, we will realize our vision: to make the Niagara Region PTA the premier association for advocacy and parent involvement association for all children!
