Subject: Involve Latinas in Public Policy. Deadline May 3rd

Latinos are one of the fastest growing groups in Texas and throughout the country, yet the small number of Latinas involved in the political process statewide is startling.

Las Comadres Para Las Americas hopes to change this, one comadre at a time. Las Comadres is proud to announce that the application period for the Texas Public Policy and Civic Engagement Program (TPP-ACE) 2012 has opened.

The deadline to submit the application is May 3, 2012.

TPP-ACE is a state-level program designed to encourage Comadres in ourTexas cities to participate in the political process by being informed on issues, candidates, and voting. Join us and learn the ins and outs of Texas government, politics, and public policy. Learn the issues. Meet the candidates and the people making things happen in Texas. Learn to effect change.
