Fairfax County Council PTA (FCCPTA) is an organization that recognizes diversity and respects ideas, perspectives, lived experiences, talents, values and worldviews from people of different backgrounds and identities. FCCPTA values differences and similarities among people through its actions and accountability.
As violent attacks and hate crimes against Asian Americans have significantly increased recently across the country, we at FCCPTA stand in solidarity with our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and stand united against all racism. #StopAsianHate
Advancing racial equity and inclusion for students and families of all races and ethnicities is paramount to promoting a safe and welcoming environment that fosters respect for differences and an appreciation of diversity.
Together, we can make a difference in promoting racial justice and advancing equity and inclusion of all students in Fairfax County.
(Our National PTA defines diversity as the following: Diversity is representation of, and respect for, people from different backgrounds and identities—including but not limited to race, culture, religion, socio-economic status, age, geographic area, sexual orientation and gender identification, language, learning style and physical appearance. It also involves bringing different ideas, perspectives, lived experiences, talents, values and worldviews to the table to represent the broad variety of children, caregivers, educators and communities within the PTA family.)
