Texas Legislature Responds
The 87th Texas Legislative Session will soon begin in January of 2021. As of December of 2020, 450 bills have already been filed and thousands more are expected to be filed throughout the session. The results of those filings will affect every Texan, beneficially or detrimentally.
In the quest for systemic change, one quickly realizes that simply giving grants can be ineffectual. In the pursuit of long term change, it is on the state level where ideas are put into law, money is allocated, and control of budgets is determined for years to come. The independent sector and non-profit organizations can affect local and ground-level problem solving and organizing, but must specifically ensure that energy, time, and resources are spent moving issues from local arenas to the State Legislature for broader action. Citizens interested in positive systemic change must pay attention to and participate in the legislative session if they want important societal considerations to be taken into account and advanced.
Join us for this important conversation and learn how you, too, can be a voice for change at a higher, more impactful level.
