So much has happened this last week, the Texas Freedom Caucus was formed in the Texas House which will hopefully increase our “grassroots voice” on the issues that we care about and the Christian community came together with one voice to stand up for religious freedom for everyone. President Trayce Bradford was so blessed to be able to stand with our fellow warriors to defend liberty and religious freedom here in Texas.
Reminder as well to continue to stand for LIFE in the womb. Trayce testified this last week in support of SB 415 to ban the performance of dismemberment abortions. Let’s continue to pray for all of these important bills working their way through the legislature right now.
We have much to do this week, so here is our TOP 5 for this week. Reminder as well to continue to stand for LIFE.
#1 Please sign up to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – We are still building up our social media following but it is a great way to get out information fast. Invite people to LIKE our page on Facebook or retweet something on Twitter. We are posting items just on social media like this graphic from State Representative Matt Rinaldi from Friday. We need a wave of voices and footsteps to keep this movement building and to support all the good that is being done. It can get easy to see the negative but we do have patriots working hard this session and they need prayers and action – in person and online.
#2 Speaking of Matt Rinaldi – we are 100% behind his HB 421 Church Security Bill (Relating to the exemption from application of the Private Security Act of certain persons who provide security services on a volunteer basis at a place of religious worship) which has been sent to the Homeland Security & Public Safety Committee. Please call your House Member and ask them to support this bill and please call the Members on the Committee as well.
#3 Please call your State Senators in support of Senator Bob Hall’s SB 83 bill to protect our grid – (Relating to protection of energy critical infrastructure from electromagnetic, geomagnetic, terrorist, and cyber-attack threats.) Currently the bill is in the Business and Commerce committee and a hearing request has been put in. Reminder that when you call your representatives or any representatives to be cordial and kind and to give the staffer just a minute or so of why you support a bill. It can be as simple as saying “I support SB 83 to protect our energy grid. Thank you.” Be prepared to give your address, phone number, and email to the staffer.
#4 On Wednesdays – we are continuing to put out blog posts from some amazing women highlighting their thoughts on our culture and what it means to be a woman here in America currently. This last Wednesday, we featured a post from our intern Bethany Jarrell. Check it out. You can also sort blog posts by topics/tags anytime – check out everything we have written by our guest writers.
#5 Read Our Blog – So much is going on in the Texas House and our liberty-minded friends have banded together to create the Texas Freedom Caucus. Read about it on our blog and then like them on Facebook.
