PTA Areas of Advocacy

Safe Schools and Communities

 No parent should fear for the safety of their child every time they leave home. But all too often, children are put in harm’s way due to gun and other forms of violence in their community. Parents, teachers, school administrators and other education advocates must work together to prevent violence in schools and the community through the creation of connected communities and positive school climates that keep students safe, healthy and in school. Family engagement plays a key role in gun safety and violence prevention, which is why PTAs nationwide are engaged in the development and implementation of school safety policies and emergency response plans to maintain a safe learning environment for all students. 


We Advocate to:

  1.  Provide incentives for school districts to ensure there are necessary and qualified personnel to respond to the mental, physical, behavioral, developmental and academic needs of all students 
  2. Support state and federal funding for research on the causes and effects of gun violence on youth and communities
  3. Promote education initiatives that raise public awareness of firearm safety and gun violence prevention strategies 
  4. Require a waiting period and comprehensive background check prior to buying a firearm 
  5. Ban access to military-style semi-automatic assault weapons
