Florida has a National PTA Advocate Winner!

Feb 7, 2018

We are very excited to congratulate a Florida parent for her success on changing Florida legislation for madating elementary schools to have daily recess for the students!  

Congratulations to Angie Gallo of Orlando, Florida for being the recipient of the Shirley Igo Advocate Award!  Among her many advocacy efforts, Angie Gallo worked alongside the advocacy organization “Recess Moms” to urge the passage of a bill to require 20 minutes of daily recess for all elementary students in Florida. She met with many Florida legislators on both sides of the aisle to gain support for this important piece of legislation, including the speaker of the house. The recess mandate become law in the summer of 2017, and Florida become the first state in the country to meet physical activity recommendations for its elementary school students. Gallo has served as legislative chair for Florida PTA for the past three years, working tirelessly to build relationships with legislators as well as with lobbyists and advocacy allies. Her efforts have changed the way many policymakers view Florida PTA, garnering new respect for the association’s voice and a seat for the association at many tables.

“Advocacy is critical to make a difference for education and the health, safety and well-being of our nation’s children,” said Jim Accomando, president of National PTA.
