The foundation of the PTA is advocacy.  As the largest volunteer child advocacy association in the nation, PTA provides parents and families with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child and the best tools to help their children be safe, healthy, and successful - in school and in life.  

In Washington State, the PTA has been a leader in engaging all levels of government to improve the lives of all children and their families.  Members of Briarwood PTA play an important role in this process.  Every year, we send delegates to the two major PTA Advocacy events:  Legislative Assembly and Focus Day.  Throughout the year, we keep members informed of relevant legislative issues affecting the Issaquah School District, provide updates on the ongoing legislative session, provide relevant information about and arrange meetings with our local State Legislatures, and promote voter registration for students who have recently turned 18 and for all voters in local, state, and national elections.
