POSITIVE PARENTING AWARENESS MONTH IN CALIFORNIA
On January 13, 2020, ACR 140 (Stone) passed unanimously out of the State Assembly, declaring January 2020 as the first annual Positive Parenting Awareness Month in California. The resolution was subsequently passed by the Senate.
Representatives from 11 counties that implement positive parenting programs advocated for this statewide resolution, and many traveled to the state Capitol to witness this historic vote.
In January 2021, HR 4 (Stone) also passed unanimously in the State Assembly, marking the second annual Positive Parenting Awareness Month.
Advocates across California are preparing for PPAM in January 2022.
