Keith Lowry, BGCT family specialist, shared this note with me a few moments ago. Apparently Texas legislators are considering dropping funding for the TwoGether in Texas premarital education program.
Urgent! Your phone calls are needed to save the TwoGether in Texas Initiative! Calls needed within the next 48 hrs.
We need people to call/email their Senators in the next 48hrs. What we are asking them to do is simply let the State Senators know that they are residents of Texas who support and understand the great value of marriage education, and ask/urge/request that they do what they can to make sure Texas continues to fund programs that support “Healthy Marriages” like the TwoGether in Texas program.
If they have any personal stories on the impact of marriage education, or if they have participated in the Twogether in Texas program by taking a class that would be great to share as well. In most cases, if you call you will leave a message with someone on the Senators staff, but that is OK. They compile a list of daily calls on issues and report to the Senator.
If you call, just ask for someone in the office to share your concerns for loss of funding for “Health and Human Services Healthy Marriage Programs.”
