From Our President

PTA is the largest child advocacy group in the nation.  Please join us as we strive to make every child's potential a reality. How much do you know about PTA?  Did you know that Alabama PTA was established in 1911?  PTA is more than a fundraising organization.  Alabama PTA advocates for all children in our state.

Explain

 

Tell how the proposed legislation affects your school or school system and why he/she should support, oppose or change the legislation. Refer to bills by number, if possible, but always tell what the bill does. The bill number is important, but without an explanation of what the bill does, the number may be meaningless.

Ask

 

Don’t just tell legislators you support or oppose a bill, ask them to support or oppose it as well. Also ask legislators to let you know their positions on the bill. 

 

 

Advocacy

Some communication tips for advocating with elected officials:
Suggest

Tell legislators what specific action you suggest they take (vote for or against the bill when it comes before them; speak for or against the bill; amend the bill to remove something objectionable or add something favorable, etc.) 

 

Secure

Ask for a commitment for a position or action. Once you have a commitment, watch to see that it is met. Thank legislators for standing by their commitments and politely let them know you are aware when they have not.

Thank

Let your legislators know you appreciate their time and consideration of your views.
