Advocacy and Community Issues

California State PTA Advocacy

California State PTA regularly posts advocacy positions, endorses ballot measures, and lobbies for state and national legislation that aligns with our mission. The PTA cannot endorse political candidates, but can and does host public candidate forums for local races and issues.

You can track legislative updates on the CAPTA Advocacy page.
