URGENT ACTION ALERT

Friends,

At 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, House Bill 2623 (Allen, Alma | Thompson, Senfronia) and House Bill 3887 (Coleman) will be heard before the Senate Education Committee – because of you.

Your calls, your emails to friends, your commitment to advancing legislation for youth mental health. You made this happen. And you can’t stop now. We’ve come too far. Together.

Each member of the Senate Education Committee needs to know how important these bills are to Texas students and that, when I stand before them to testify tomorrow, I have all of you standing beside me.

We have eight days left to pass these bills.

Please take five minutes to call your State Senator and the Senate Education Committee to let them know you support our Senate sponsor, Senator Zaffirini, and House Bill 2623 (Transition Services) and House Bill 3887 (Trauma Training). Ask them to vote yes on both bills and send them to the Senate floor for a vote.

With gratitude,

Annalee Gulley
Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs
Mental Health America of Greater Houston

Please call your Houston Senator – and members of the Senate Education Committee – and ask that they support HB 2623 (Allen | Thompson, Senfronia) and HB 3887 (Coleman).  The more support they hear, the better our chance of getting the bills voted out of the Education Committee as soon as possible.
