If you want to help volunteer at Texas NORML’s events and during our educational and lobbying efforts, you can participate in our Volunteer Training Days. We will be holding one on Saturday, January 7th at 10:30am and Wednesday, January 11th at 11:30am.
The 2017 Legislative Session will also be starting on January 10th. So we are continuing our Direct Actions at the Capitol the following day – Wednesday, January 11th. We will be delivering educational flyers to legislator’s offices.
We will also be holding our Annual 2017 Capitol Advocacy Training on Saturday, January 14th. This training event is designed to help you become an effective advocate for marijuana law reform in Texas and to prepare you to lobby effectively for our bills during the Legislative Session. This training event will offer you the tools you need to make effective arguments, dispel common myths, confidently communicate with your legislators, and positively affect policy during the upcoming legislative session.
We anticipate an exciting and fast paced Legislative Session so stay tuned for more updates!
