The Texas Tribune and the LBJ Future Forum are pleased to present a special event marking the October launch of the Tribune's newest reporting project, "God and Governing," which explores the role Texas lawmakers' personal religious beliefs play in their legislative decision-making.
In coordination with the project, we invite you to join us at the LBJ Presidential Library for a discussion with lawmakers about religion and the Legislature. Tribune Editor Emily Ramshaw will moderate.
Our panelists include:
- State Rep. Donna Howard, D-Austin
- State Rep. Celia Israel, D-Austin
- State Rep. David Simpson, R-Longview
- State Rep. James White, R-Woodville
This event will be held on the 10th floor of the LBJ Presidential Library. A brief reception with drinks and appetizers will follow. This event is free and open to the public.
The conversation will also be livestreamed at texastribune.org/livestream beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7, and the video will be accessible for viewing afterward.
Parking for the LBJ Presidential Library is free in the designated parking lot 38.
This event is co-produced by The Texas Tribune and the LBJ Future Forum with media support by KLRU.
