"The mission of the California State PTA is to positively impact the lives of all children and families by representing our members, and empowering and supporting them with skills in advocacy, leadership and communications."
Dear PTA Community,
We are entering a frightening and difficult time; the new political climate has enabled those with hateful views to feel more comfortable expressing them openly. We are already hearing that hate crimes and hate speech are on the rise throughout our nation, even in our own extended community. For our children and their families who are of color, immigrants, LGBTQ, Muslim, female, Latina/o, disabled, and from any other number of communities, the danger and fear are very real.
In this time when hatefulness is on the rise, we call on all our members to join with the Berkeley PTA Council in affirming our key mission: to build strong communities for ALL of our children and their families.
