Introduction to ATPE’s Advocacy

ATPE is member-owned and member-governed. Therefore, ATPE members have a collective voice of more than 115,000 educators shaping the public education priorities we advocate at the Capitol. ATPE works year-round as a professional, positive voice focused on uniting educators in support of an exemplary public education for every Texas student.

ATPE provides ongoing political involvement training, a political action committee and lobby day, for members who choose to become actively involved in the political process. From the Legislative Alert Network (LAN) to candidate voting records, ATPE gives you the tools needed to stay informed.
