National PTA President Anna King and Texas PTA President Suzi Kennon issued the following statement on the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas:
“We are disgusted that 19 children and two teachers were killed at an elementary school today, yet again from gun violence. These precious lives were senselessly taken before they even had a chance to reach their full potential. Allowing these incidents to continue is unacceptable. We demand Congress immediately adopt measures that ensure our children are protected from harm. It’s past time to take action to protect the lives of our children and families.
We urge everyone to join us for our upcoming Hill Day Experience to amplify your voice with your federal representatives on community safety and youth violence prevention. For those in need of mental health support during this time, free resources are available at PTA.org/HealthyMinds.”
