TACFS board and member organizations gathered Tuesday, Jan. 24 at the Texas Capitol to bring child, youth, and family priorities to state decision makers. We visited nearly 200 representative and senator offices with our Legislative Priorities one-pager. Many members visited state representatives from the areas they serve. In the afternoon, we heard from Representative Greg Bonnen, M.D., Sarah Hicks, Senior Advisor and Budget Director for Governor Greg Abbott, and Senator Royce West. Each speaker championed Alliance advocacy efforts and echoed some of our top priorities such as prioritization of rate modernization, kinship care, and prevention/family preservation.
Thank you to all the members who traveled to join us in Austin to do this important work! Stay engaged with our advocacy efforts by visiting TACFS.org/88th.
