Members of the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) heard from Executive Director Tim Lee today on Facebook Live and YouTube about TRTA’s innovative letter writing campaign!
Members of TRTA will begin receiving their copy of the first quarter issue of The VOICE this week and early next week. This unique issue arrives in a clear polybag and includes everything you need to write a letter to your State Senator and Representative, including the names of your legislators!
As TRTA members know, all of our in-person events have been canceled through June 30, 2021. We won’t let that stop us from showing our presence at the Texas Capitol this session!
The TRTA Red Letter Campaign is a challenge to our entire membership to send our urgent priorities for public education retirees to all state Senators and Representatives. Use this unique opportunity to tell your story, talk about what matters most to you, and ask for the Legislature’s help this session!
This is your chance to make your voice heard in the hallways of the granite dome! We’ve even included two red envelopes in your issue so that the sea of red we usually bring to the Capitol by wearing red shirts and bandanas can still be seen and felt by our elected officials.
Check your mailboxes this week and early next week for this special packet!
Also included in your packet is a sticker you can wear when you visit with your legislators virtually during TRTA Zoom to the Capitol. More details about this exciting, weeklong event will be shared in the coming weeks.
