Equality Education is a public education and civic engagement program on policy issues and their effect on Texas citizens. The Project also trains participants to establish relationships with their state representatives and senators, and to advocate for policy changes with their elected officials.
The training covers an overview of LGBTQ issues in Texas, information on best practices for visiting with your lawmaker, including how to tell your story, role playing office visits, and a walk through the legislative process in Texas.
Learn more about employment nondiscrimination, family recognition, LGBT-parented families, hate crimes, bullying & harassment, gender marker corrections, public accommodations, and other pertinent issues. Also learn how easy it is to have a one-on-one conversation with your elected officials and their staff.
After attending an Equality Education training, webinar or briefing, you’ll be more effective, comfortable, and prepared to communicate with your lawmaker.
Equality Texas Foundation is committed to encouraging every Texan to speak with their elected officials about the need for equal treatment in our state. If you would like to schedule an Equality Education training, contact Robert Salcido, Jr., our Community Outreach and Engagement Manager (South), at Robert.Salcido@equalitytexas.org.
