Black Star Community PTA

Organizing and empowering parents around the issues that matter!

The mission of the Black Star Community PTA is to provide an organized platform for parents, particularly African American parents, to advocate for as well as to educate our children. The Black Star Community PTA is designed to support parents as active co-managers of our children's destiny, schools cannot educate children without the support of parens, families, and communities. The Black Star Community PTA will assist in providing resources to empower parents to be the engineers of their child's success. We will work in our homes, with our families, with our communities, with our schools, with our clergy and with our elected officials to guarantee the safety and successful education of minority children.
