Austin Political Organizing School – everyone welcome!

Monday, September 12  / TSEU Office / 6:00pm / event flier

This fall, who we elect will be the decision-makers over our pay, benefits and the services we provide. It is critical that we get more involved in state level elections to influence legislators to take action on our issues.  At TSEU’s Political Organizing School, you will learn:

  • An overview of area and statewide candidates running for state office
  • How the political process has a direct affect on our working conditions
  • How by working together, we can change the direction of Texas politics
  • How political involvement influences the decisions made by legislators.
