At The Capitol

State and national advocacy

As Texas’ leading educators’ association, our advocacy efforts carry significant weight with lawmakers. We take your voice to the Capitol, expertly advocating for your priorities and rights at the state and national levels. ATPE’s experienced lobbyists focus only on issues affecting Texas public educators and students, not outside issues.
