Note: In order to maintain a nonprofit status under federal rules, Georgia PTA (and all local units under its umbrella) is nonpartisan and works to direct its efforts at members of both political parties in order to enact change. When PTA officers or lobbyists participate in legislative activities that educate lawmakers about officially adopted PTA positions, or support a particular piece of legislation that is in agreement with the PTA Legislative Program, it is done on a strictly nonpartisan basis.

PTA is a national organization that was born with a spirit for advocacy. It was founded in Washington DC back on February 17, 1879 at a meeting of over 2000 parents, teachers, workers, and legislators as the National Congress of Mothers by Alice McLellan Birney and Phoebe Apperson Hearst. Still today, the “overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children”, as it reads on its web page.
