Advocacy

Are you concerned about safe school openings? Class size? Special Ed support? School funding? Testing? Do you want to know what is happening in our district or state that affects our students, teachers and schools?

 

The ACPTA Advocacy Google Group is where experts share information, non-partisan non-profits share insight, and parents and teachers go to find information to share with their schools and communities.

How can you make a difference?

Advocacy is a marathon, not a sprint. Take care of yourself along the way but be prepared to stay engaged, involved, and vocal. Changing the world is a big lift and it’s going to take all of us to make it happen. 

vote

Register to vote and then do it. Only 8% of Austinites voted in the last election. We must do better if we want elected officials to represent our views.

contact Representatives

 Find out who represents you. Send emails, write postcards or letters, and call those representatives with your personal stories, hopes, dreams, solutions, worries, and real-life challenges.
