Event Details

Mark your calendars to Jump on the Bus with TexProtects!

 

WHAT IS JUMP ON THE BUS:
Join TexProtects' "Jump on the Bus with Us" for our Prevent Child Abuse Texas
Advocacy Day at the Texas State Capitol. We will depart our Dallas headquarters
at 7:00 AM on a chartered bus to Austin (not a school bus!).
Once we arrive at the Capitol, we will meet our Austin Policy team and meet with
Texas Legislators to educate them on top child protection priorities with a focus on
preventing child trauma, neglect and abuse.
 

WHY WE ADVOCATE:
Legislators take up issues that are important to their constituents. At TexProtects,
child protection is our number one priority. Organizing coordinated advocacy
events like Jump on the Bus help educate lawmakers about key child protection
issues that ultimately help shape and pass legislation to protect children.

WHO WE NEED:
We need advocates in a wide range of fields and areas of expertise to join us on
this exciting day at the Capitol.
We are looking for adults in the following areas:

Business Professionals
Educators and Early Childhood Specialists
Physicians, Nurses, and other Health Care Professionals
Mental and Behavioral Health Care Professionals
Child Care Advocates
Current or Former Foster Youth
ANYONE who cares about the wellbeing of Texas's children and protecting
them from neglect, trauma and abuse!

WHY WE NEED YOU:
Texas legislators are our representatives and it is POWERFUL for them to hearfrom their constituency in person!
It is much more meaningful and effective when issues as critical as CHILD
PROTECTION are voiced by the constituency directly to their legislative representative.
Having a broad range of constituents JUMP ON THE BUS WITH US – from
experts in the field to caring voters concerned about children in our state tovoice their concerns and share their professional or personal experiences iscritical to shaping policy.
