PAA Action Alert

for the 2015 PAA annual
leadership conference!

Parents Across America is holding our 2015 Leadership Conference from Monday - Wednesday, July 20-22, 2015, just outside of Washington DC.  


This conference is designed for PAA chapter and affiliate members or individuals or groups seriously considering forming PAA chapters or affiliates. You can find out more about becoming a PAA chapter or affiliate here.   


The conference will include interesting and informative workshops and discussions on Monday and Tuesday including:

  • sessions on local and federal lobbying,
  • time to share chapter and affiliate successes and challenges,
  • learning more from each other about powerful messaging, test stress, and race, poverty and education, and
  • opportunities to share ideas about how PAA can better support local work.

Wednesday is set aside for Capitol Hill visits.


Come ready to brainstorm, learn, and support one another as we fight to save public education!


You can find the full conference schedule and other registration information here.
