The New Jersey PTA will hold an Advocacy Day on Jan. 12 for parents and community members to learn how to be a more effective advocate for children. The half-day program will begin at 9:30 a.m., and will be held at the Hamilton Free Public Library in Hamilton Township, Mercer County.

Jonathan Pushman, NJSBA legislative advocate, will be among the presenters at the program, and will speak on “Who is the decision maker on the local, county and state level?”

“We have partnered with the New Jersey PTA on many initiatives,” said Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, NJSBA executive director. “We are pleased to participate in the organization’s Winter Advocacy Day and urge our members who are available on Jan. 12 to consider attending the event.”

The program is free, but pre-registration is required. Registration can be completed online.
