The 87th Texas Legislative Session has ended, and there’s a lot for us to reflect on together! Whether you have experience in disability advocacy or it’s new to you, you’re invited to be a part of a four-session virtual training series hosted by The Arc of Texas and Easterseals Central Texas.
What will the training cover?
Participants will learn about what happened during the 87th Texas Legislative Session, make connections with other new and emerging disability advocates, and discuss advocacy activities you can do both during and after a legislative session.
When is the training?
This training will be held virtually through Zoom from noon to 1:15 p.m. CST each Wednesday in July 2021.
Will the training happen another time?
No. This is the only time this training will be held.
How much does it cost?
All four training sessions are free!
Who can attend?
Anyone who is interested in learning more about advocacy is welcome to join. This training is perfect for those who have never been involved in disability advocacy before, or those who want to strengthen their existing skills. People with disabilities, their families, and their allies are all invited to attend.
