Mother’s Day Out – Lunch, Learn and Legislative Training image

For Moms, by Moms

Texas Public Policy Foundation is committed to supporting one of the most important special interest groups in our state – Moms. We know that mothers run the home, carry a mental load that others in society can’t understand, and protect our children so they may grow into happy and thriving adults. We want to honor and recognize the amazing mothers in Texas with the Mother’s Day Out for all mothers, an event run and hosted by TPPF mothers.

Join some of TPPF’s moms, who are also experts on policy issues most concerning moms, to learn how we are addressing your concerns, get your questions answered, and enjoy training on how to best advocate for your children at the Texas Capitol. Moms will be empowered with knowledge and skills to do our most important role: protect and raise our children.

Complimentary lunch and mimosas will be provided for in-person attendees. You are also welcome to tune in online via livestream.
