Multiple Local Advocacy Organizations Co-Sponsor Civic Engagement Program
AUSTIN, Texas (July 12, 2010) – Equality Texas Foundation staff will train North Texas residents in Frisco this Saturday, July 17. The Equality Project is a public education program to teach attendees how policy issues affect Texas citizens. The project trains participants to establish relationships with their state representatives and senators and to advocate for policy changes. Equality Texas Foundation hopes equality supporters will maintain continuous conversations with their elected officials asking lawmakers to eliminate policy discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression.
“I am very excited to bring this training to North Texas,” said Jeanne Rubin, a member of the boards of directors of Equality Texas and the Collin County Gay & Lesbian Alliance. “Our conservative elected officials at the state and local levels present similar challenges. The Equality Project will give advocates the tools they need to educate the public and work together to affect policy change at all levels,” Rubin added.
