WSPTA and National PTA Address Inequities

On June 1, WSPTA released a statement, Washington State PTA Stands with All Advocates to Address Inequities, in response to the civil unrest exhibited by concerned citizens across the country.

Washington State PTA’s vision is that every child’s potential becomes a reality. This can only happen in a just society that places equal value on every person’s well-being, education, and safety. Every child means just that, every child. As a society, we must do better

On June 2, 2020 National PTA Issued a Statement on Racial Inequity and Injustice in America.

“Our transcendent goal has always been to change the lives of children for the better and we will continue to ensure our society values and protects every child. We encourage PTA members and all concerned citizens to speak out and demand that every child be afforded the opportunity to make their potential a reality. Together, we can move above and beyond the perceived division of our diverse experiences and build a shared experience—the experience of working together as human beings, intent on building a better nation and world for our children’s future.”
