Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Whittier PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit local unit organized under the authority of the Illinois PTA, a branch of the National PTA. Our mission and commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion reflects the guidance and best practices of the National and IL State PTA.
The PTA represents parents, caregivers, educators and communities of all children, which enables us to best achieve PTA’s mission to make every child’s potential a reality. Our collective backgrounds, perspectives and ideas allow us to create the strongest future and direction for PTA.
