Texas AFT invites all educators and support staff to join us in Austin on the first Monday of spring break, March 13, for the 2017 Texas AFT Lobby Day. It is our turn to educate the legislature about our priorities and tell them to do what’s right.
Our first message to lawmakers: “Texas can do better. Our kids shouldn’t have to wait for fair and full funding for education!”
Texas AFT will provide a legislative orientation and lunch. Hundreds of school employees will be mobilized for this event to rally for our public schools. You do not have to be a member of AFT to participate—all are welcome!
