Special Session Underway! Contact Your Legislators Now!

The special session is in full swing, and lawmakers are considering a number of anti-public education proposals backed by Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick. Bills to fund private school vouchers with taxpayer dollars and legislation to take away educators' rights to voluntarily deduct professional membership dues from their own paychecks have been fast-tracked in the Texas Senate.

We need your help to fight these and other dangerous proposals and to stand up for our public schools and hardworking educators. Whether or not you attended the Texans for Public Education Rally, you can still help us advocate for public education!

Please visit Advocacy Central today to contact your legislators about the education bills being considered right now. (Member log in required.)
