We invite you to come up with activities or participate in activities to recognize, honor, and celebrate parents for their leadership roles in their homes and communities.

- Providing opportunities for parents to demonstrate parent leadership
- Publicize and expand opportunities for parent leaders to participate in meaningful parent leadership activities at the local, state, and national levels.
