Monday, October 10, 2016 11:56 AM | Anonymous

On Tuesday, September 27, 2016, the National Parent Teacher Asssociation (PTA) hosted a webinar in collaboration with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) "Embracing Family Diversity: Welcoming LGBTQ Families Webinar". The webinar is part of the National PTA's Every Child in Focus Leadership Series.

Webinar description, "Family Engagement in children’s education allows kids to perform better in school, and navigate more easily some of the challenges of growing up, such as bullying. Today’s PTA is the vehicle through which engaged parents can accomplish great things for their children and ensure their overall success. In order to create inclusive PTAs which welcome all families, family diversity must be taken into consideration. How can your PTA create a welcoming culture for all families?"

Webinar Participants:

  • Laura Bay, President, National PTA
  • Ellen Kahn, Director of Children, Youth, & Families Program at HRC
  • Tony Bonetti, Director of Community Engagement & Program Coordination at Rainbow Families & PTA President at His Daughter's Elementary School
