Legislative Summit and Lobby Day

Now is the time to speak up to support children.

Join NYS PTA members from across the state in Albany from February 9-10, 2020 for Legislative Summit and Lobby Day!

Why come? We need YOU to help us advocate for:

  • Mental health support for students and families
  • Funding for enough guidance counselors, school nurses, arts and music for children
  • Recovery High Schools and programs for students with substance use disorders
