National PTA

“National PTA® comprises millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community leaders devoted to the educational success of children and the promotion of parent involvement in schools. PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit association that prides itself on being a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.” We have found the advocacy of the National PTA on behalf of gender variant and transgender youth engaging. They crafted a “Resolution on the Recognition of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Individuals as a Protected Class” in 2015. You can read more about it here. If you are needing support in your school culture and have access to a PTA organization, this online resource is ideal. They also partnered with The Human Rights Campaign to present a series of webinars to support PTA advocacy on behalf of LGBTQ students on school campuses, as mentioned above. These webinars are a great opportunity to gain valuable resources for your child’s school site. {@NationalPTA}
