Las Comadres Texas Public Policy and Civic Engagement

Las Comadres Texas Public Policy and Civic Engagement

Latinos are one of the fastest growing groups in Texas and throughout the country, yet the small number of Latinas involved in the political process statewide is startling.

Las Comadres Para Las Americas hopes to change this, one comadre at a time. Las Comadres is proud to announce that the application period for the Texas Public Policy and Civic Engagement Program (TPP-ACE) 2012 has opened.

The deadline to submit the application is May 3, 2012.

TPP-ACE is a state-level program designed to encourage Comadres in ourTexas cities to participate in the political process by being informed on issues, candidates, and voting. Join us and learn the ins and outs of Texas government, politics, and public policy. Learn the issues. Meet the candidates and the people making things happen in Texas. Learn to effect change. CHANGE STARTS WITH YOU!!!

We are honored to hold all of our classes in the State Capitol with our very knowledgeable and experienced panelists and presenters. Don't miss this opportunity to learn about the political process and the importance of our involvement in it.

Whether you want to be an advocate, work in campaigns or be THE candidate, the experience will help prepare you to participate in a more knowledgeable manner.

For an application form, please email Gloria Lenoir
