The 85th Session of the Texas Legislature begins on January 10, and many voices will be descend upon Austin, jockeying for airtime inside the Capitol.
Just days after the session begins, Texas Right to Life is partnering with Empower Texans on Saturday, January 14 to host the first Grassroots Strategy Summit of 2017. The Summit is designed to teach and equip citizens to strategically effect change during the upcoming Texas legislative session.
January 14 will be an interactive day in which staff from Texas Right to Life and Empower Texans will provide one-on-one advice about engaging with elected officials and their staff in the Capitol, no matter the issues and interests of you and your community.
How does the Grassroots Strategy Summit apply to Pro-Life activists?
A knowledgeable, equipped, and committed citizenry is an integral part of Texas Right to Life’s success lobbying for Pro-Life laws. For the Pro-Life movement to be successful, the ability of grassroots leaders to quickly organize is crucial when Pro-Life measures are underhandedly stalled or anti-Life measures gain traction.
No matter your group’s policy goals, the building blocks taught at the Summit can be employed to advance successful advocacy under the Pink Dome.
