Recent Advocacy Success Stories:
PTA leaders from across the country gathered in DC for the annual National PTA Legislative Conference March 10-12, 2020. Indiana had 5 adults and 1 student representative in attendance this year. Delegates received training on advocacy issues, then visited Capitol Hill to speak with legislators on priority issues. We were able to meet with Senator Young and Senator Braun, as well as staff members from the offices of Congressman Carson, Congressman Bucshon, Congressman Visclosky, Congressman Banks, and Congresswoman Brooks. This year, the timing of our visit also allowed us to address specific emergency needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our delegation encouraged legislators to make sure that the CARES act addressed communal feeding requirements, allowing schools to keep feeding students during the shutdown.
State legislative information coming soon.
