On Sunday, January 29th, the Travis County Democratic Party held a Legislative Advocacy Training, with help from Manny Garcia from the Texas Democratic Party, Summer Luciano from Rep. Eddie Rodriguez’s office, Stella Savage from Sen. Sylvia Garcia’s office, Doug Greco from Rep. Gina Hinojosa’s office, and UDems.
Our chair, Vincent Harding, gave opening remarks. Sen. Wendy Davis and Congressman Lloyd Doggett spoke to get the crowd excited to learn how to best advocate for themselves at the Capitol.
Manny Garcia from TDP led the training and explained what our legislative priorities are this session, how to keep track of bills, and best practices when testifying. View his presentation here.
We also passed out sheet with helpful links and bullet points from the session. Download the sheet here.
