86th Texas Legislative Session Interns Highlights

During the 86th Texas Legislative Session an integral part of our advocacy approach included strategic partnerships with the Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) and the Children’s Defense Fund of Texas (CDF-Texas). At the heart of the work were grants that we awarded to CPPP and CDF-TX that provided interns and enhanced advocacy and research teams.  The results of the capacity added to each organization through the partnerships were promising and the impacts of these partnerships on the interns involved and policy advocacy accomplished were exciting to see!  We are currently preparing to host post-session wrap-up meetings in the Houston area and will provide more details about this upcoming activity in the near future.
