Over next few months, the challenges facing the Texas Legislature could not be more serious.
Children are in overcrowded classrooms. College is out of reach for many and student loan debt is bankrupting a generation. Healthcare, for those lucky to have it, is facing chaos. The foster care system is in crisis and kids are dying. The most essential state services will be slashed by billions if Trump Republicans have their way, and our economy has taken a dive from 3rd to 21st under Republican Gov. Greg Abbott.
In January, our membership began voting on our legislative priorities, among them public education funding, women’s rights, criminal justice reform, and the environment, to name a few.
Texas Democrats are fighting to ensure every community has a fair shot to get ahead. One ally in the fight against Trump Republican priorities is Trans-Cendence International, Inc.
Our February meeting features Finnigan Jones, Executive Director and co-founder of Trans-Cendence International, Inc. Finnigan serves as a leader in the transgender community of DFW and serves as a consultant to other transgender communities outside of Texas. He is a veteran of the United States Coast Guard, a transgender/gender identity consultant, and ally training consultant.
We’ll hear about SB6, Dan Patrick’s “bathroom bill” and about the fight for a safer Texas.
See you at Los Jims, and bring a friend!
