Downtown Art Walk
Friday, April 21 to Sunday, April 23

Art is all around us! Let’s take some time to look around and appreciate it in honor of our friend Charlene Goodman. This will be a self-guided art walk around the Sacramento convention center and State Capitol to explore and interact with a number of forms of art nearby. For those who would like to go with a group, we offer daily walks led by a member of the Health and Community Concerns Commission or the Arts Education Committee. For those who are not able to participate in the walk, there will be a virtual experience as well.

Advocacy Celebration
Saturday, April 22 | 1:00 PM

Let’s celebrate our advocacy work at the California State Capitol. Meet at the west steps before 1:00 for a professional picture in front of the Capitol. You’ll be part of the living legacy of California State PTA. We’ll take the picture at 1:00 so arrive a little early–we have a special permit so don’t be late. Thank you to Adams Photography for helping us with this celebration.
