In 1897, 2 women came together to form the National Congress of Mothers to eliminate threats that endangered children. In 1970, they merged with the National Congress of Congress of Colored Parents and Teachers to become the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to advocate for children and youth issues in our country.
