Make Your Voice Heard in the Texas State Legislature this Year with RAC-TX! By Erin Solka, NFTY-TOR Social Action Vice President 2020-2021
Shalom NFTY-TOR! We have many exciting opportunities planned for 2021, and one that I want to share with y’all is our involvement in the Texas Religious Action Center’s (RAC-TX) Legislative Campaign. RAC-TX is organizing a campaign to advocate during the 2021 Texas Legislative Session, which lasts from January-May. This will include planning virtual lobby visits with state legislators.
- Join one of two identical Issue Selection Town Halls to weigh in on what RAC-TX’s main focus should be during the legislative session.
- Join one of two identical Issue Campaign Launch and Training sessions to learn abouthow to have productive virtual lobby meetings, as well as other details about the campaign.
- Stay tuned for communication regarding setting up a lobby visit with a legislator! We willattend together as a teen delegation, and prepare beforehand.
Thank you to Rabbi David Segal, Ethan Lane-Miller, Camille Trawick, Cameron Samuels, Ronen Wenderfer, and Shayna Levy for their work over the past couple of months in creating these opportunities!
I am so excited to see what positive change we can make as Jewish teens on the state level, and I hope you will join me.
