PTA advocates for every child and we speak with one voice. But each year, as our population becomes more diverse it becomes increasingly difficult to speak for each child. It is difficult to speak to the desperate needs that affect those children whose current voices are too small to be heard.
Diversity is defined as including and realizing the potential of everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, gender, marital status, socio-economic status, education, mental ability, national origin, parental status, employment status, experience, language, religion, ability, age, and sexual orientation.
Commitment Statement: Florida PTA has a history of recognizing the diverse nature of our population and the challenges that this diversity brings to the fulfillment of our purpose. Through ongoing efforts, Florida PTA is committed to ensuring that our membership and leadership will be more reflective of the diversity of the population of our state. Furthermore, Florida PTA is equally committed to helping our regions, councils, and local units recognize and reflect their own diverse populations.
