Investing in an Equitable Recovery Plan for Texans of All Backgrounds
Help Texas Recover
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) has brought billions of dollars to our state to help Texans recover from the pandemic. This session, the Texas Legislature is responsible for allocating some of these funds. This is an opportunity for Texas legislators to invest in an equitable recovery plan for Texans of all backgrounds. In order to know what everyday Texans need to recover and thrive, legislators need to hear from you. We need your voice!
Hear from Every Texan's Luis Figueroa, Eva DeLuna Castro, and Amy Knop-Narbutis what policymakers can do with ARP funding to ensure a just and equitable state for all Texans.
Ways the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Fiscal Recovery Funding Can Be Used:
Tell Legislators What You, Your Family, and Community Need to Recover and Thrive!
Your voice matters. You know your community best. Do not let the Legislature waste these vital funds on criminalization efforts, corporate giveaways, or backdoor tax cuts for the wealthy. It is critical that legislators hear from communities that have been most affected by the pandemic. Let’s tell legislators what you, your family, and your community need to recover and thrive!
Here are three ways to let legislators know what your community needs:
Contact Your Legislators
Take 15 seconds to send a letter to your legislators and let them know Texans deserve a say in how the American Rescue Funding is spent. Texans know what our communities need to recover and thrive!
Submit a Form
Take 30 seconds to fill out this form and let legislators know what issues are most pressing to you! Your response will be shared with legislators who are making decisions on the funding.
