Legislative Workshop #3 – Who Holds Power at the Texas Capitol?
January 23 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Power concedes nothing without a demand. Frederick Douglass went on to describe that in order to win, one must first be clear on what change you seek and who is preventing that change from happening.
The same can be said for climate justice and the Texas Legislature. As we try to influence decision makers operating in complex, hard to access bureaucratic processes, deep-pocketed fossil fuel industry associations spend vast amounts of money to deploy their lobbyists to work a system they know well and to ensure your legislators do their bidding.
If we want to win sweeping and bold change on climate justice, we must know where and when to apply strategic pressure.
In that spirit, Sierra Club, Public Citizen, and many other allies invite you to learn more about who really holds power and makes decisions on the critical environmental, climate, and social justice issues being discussed at the Capitol.
Join us for part 3 in our legislative activist training series and collaborate with like-minded Texans who are organizing for power in Texas.
