In PTA we recognize and value individual differences.
We acknowledge it is not easy to become a fully inclusive organization, and we accept the challenge to build an organization where full and fair participation is the norm!
PTA members should be committed to providing fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement and to creating space for diverse voices to be heard and power to be shared. Together, we are even better!
National PTA has a wide variety of resources designed to help local PTAs chart a path forward on their DEI journey . Remember to check out " OneVoice", the official blog of National PTA ; the podcast "Notes from the Backpack"; and the National PTA Learning Series, "10 Minutes to PTA the Transformative Way".
