PAA Action Alert

Join us in DC! Here's how! 


We know that most of our PAA chapter and affiliate members and friends are not able to get to Washington DC this coming week for our annual leadership conference, so we're going to try to create some opportunities for you to participate in some of our activities virtually and long-distance.


Let's start with our Capitol Hill Day on Monday, July 28. A number of PAA leaders will be visiting Congress that day, highlighting three priority issues:

  • Reducing high-stakes testing,
  • Strengthening student privacy protections, and
  • Replacing charter "choice" with real parental empowerment.

You can join us by calling, faxing, or e-mailing your own Congressman and Senators on MONDAY with that message! Find their contact information at and


Here's our one-page priority issues statement to share.


Thanks for being a part of PAA Capitol Hill Day, and stay tuned for more opportunities to join PAA in DC!

If you share
our overall goals of progressive, positive education reform and more parent input in education policy making, we invite you to affiliate with us if you are an existing group, or to form a new PAA chapter. The more of us there are, the stronger our voice will be at every level. Here's how!
