Day of Action for Children “The Impact and Challenges of COVID-19 on Students and Schools” 

September 3, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PDT

Congressman Mike Levin is holding a virtual “Day of Action for Children” on Thursday, September 3, 2020, from 10 – 11:30am.
They have assembled a wide and varied group to discuss some of the issues around the “Impact and Challenges of COVID-19 on Students and Schools”.  We are fortunate to have two of our members discussing concerns of PTA with regards to reopening.  Please use the link below if you would like to watch the Panel discussion and potentially submit questions for the Q and A (I am not quite sure how they are handling this.)  This program is a chance for advocacy and informing one of our local representatives of the concerns shared by PTA across our region and country.

We hope you can tune in!
