Statewide Leadership Council Advocacy Team

The Statewide Leadership Council’s Steering Committee is supported by a growing Advocacy Team of system-impacted people throughout Texas. Local leaders who join the Advocacy Team have the opportunity to build their leadership and organizing skills by advocating in their communities across the state and at the Texas Legislature.
