Gun Safety and Violence Prevention Amendment Information

The MCCPTA Board of Directors voted at our November Board meeting to move the Gun Violence resolution forward as an emergency resolution -- we will bring it to a vote at the December 4 Delegates Assembly, instead of waiting until January 28, 2020.
To assist in making the December meeting efficient, please share comments on the Draft resolution with MCCPTA School Climate and Safety committee chair Gillian Huebner at climateandsafety@mccpta.org.
Below is the National PTA resolution on Gun Safety and Violence Prevention, the MCCPTA 2013 Amendment and the current 2019 Amendment Draft.
