PTA stands out from other parent groups in its long-term dedication to advocacy efforts. Through PTA, we fight for children's right to access a strong education. To that end, PTA Rally Day is a day for all PTA members across Texas to visit Austin to make our voices heard. The 86th legislative session of our Texas government will take place in 2019. On February 25th, PTA members from across the state will rally at the Capitol so that our legislators can see just how many parents are concerned about public education. On this day, in addition to a rally, we will also have the opportunity to meet with our local legislators. At this time, we can share our concerns and priorities for the next legislative session. How often have you complained about the failure of our legislators to act on important issues such as school funding and safety? This is the time to make sure that our voices are heard so that we do not have another failed legislative session. You can find the Texas PTA legislative priorities HERE, and RSVP to attend Rally Day HERE. -- Julie O’Sullivan and Ruby Powers, PTA Legislative Action Co-Chairs
