The Top 5 – February 6, 2017

We love that people are already talking about our TOP 5 list each week. You are important and your voice is important. Thank you for sharing and getting out the word. Politics is not a dirty word and getting involved is a must. Our main goal here at Texas Eagle Forum is to empower, train, and educate the people in our communities who care about the issues that we care about. Help us do that by sharing our emails or blog posts with your friends and family.


Here are our TOP 5 for this week.

#1
Sanctuary City Ban Hearing (Get Informed) – In the Governor’s State of the State address, he threw his voice behind the ban on sanctuary cities in the State of Texas. Teresa Beckmeyer wrote a great article on the subject here on the Lone Star Voice and we want to encourage you to read it and call your legislators on this important piece of legislation.

#2 Be a Point Person in your Senate District – We are continuing to look for people in each Texas Senate District to be our point people to get information out within their areas. Most districts are covered but we need more active volunteers. We would love to have you be an active part of Texas Eagle Forum. If this is something that appeals to you- please email Trayce Bradford at trayce.bradford@gmail.com and she will get you all the information.

#3 Pray for the HOUSE – The Texas House is continuing to be a problem child with no committee assignments out yet – which will shorten the time that the House can pass bills. Let’s pray that the House leadership gets organizational items settled so that they can get about the work of the people of Texas.

#4 Let’s stand with Israel against the BDS movement here in Texas – Senator Brandon Creighton and Representative Phil King are carrying legislation HB 89 & SB 134 combating the anti-Semitic Boycott Divestment & Sanctions movement. The Jewish community is organizing a day in Austin on Thursday, supporting this legislation. Let’s join together with them and stand for Israel. If you can come to Austin – please email aeddy@jfgd.org and let her know you are with Texas Eagle Forum.

 


#5
Women Wednesdays – We are posting articles by amazing WOMEN on Wednesdays on our blog. This last week we heard from Andrea Taylor, President of im2more with How Are You Not for Women? Check it out and share with your friends. Conservative women ARE for women!
