PTA was formed almost 120 years ago with the sole purpose to advocate for children. To be an advocate is to speak or write in defense of or on behalf of a person or cause. Tell us about a time when you were an advocate – this could be at home, in school, or in the community and for yourself, another person, or an organization.
