The 2021 Texas Legislative Session is well underway, and Temple Emanu-El’s advocacy team is ready to take action! On March 10, 2021, our Temple Board of Trustees approved three advocacy issues including:

  • Voting Rights – in partnership with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC-TX)
  • Medicaid Expansion
  • Criminal Justice Reform – in partnership with Teen Emanu-El, NFTY-TOR and Greene Family Camp

All current and past advocacy statements can be found on our webpage.
 
A joint training and legislative update with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC-TX) and National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW-TX) will be held on Monday, April 5 at 7 p.m. Sign up here to participate.: www.rac.org/ractxapril5
 
We hope you will get involved in this important legislative session by opting in to our action alert network and/or joining Temple Responds on Facebook. Contact Alexandra Horn with questions.
