Massachusetts PTA is proud to share with you another amazing opportunity that two our members were able to attend. National PTA hosted a Youth Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C. and both Madison Estes, who is on the National PTA Youth Committee, and Victoria Gray, who was selected as a scholarship recipient by National PTA, attended. As part of the program National PTA held workshops on how to advocate for your cause by meeting with legislators, how to present your “ask”, and what bills that are currently being followed and supported by the National PTA Legislative Agenda. Below is more on the Youth Advocacy Summit.
Madison and Victoria were able to meet with Representative Seth Moulton’s staff and Senator Warren’s staff to discuss the issues that most impacted them:
Bill S. 3427: Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Act A bill to effectively staff the public elementary schools and secondary schools of the United States with school-based mental health services providers.
