Join Concerned Women for America of Texas and our allies for Faith and Family Day at the State Capitol!
Each legislative session, we gather in Austin to let our legislators know what we expect from the biennial session. Monday, March 13, 2023, is that day—the Texas Faith and Family Day at the Capitol!
Here are the activities:
9:00 – 11:45 a.m. – Briefing session in the Capitol Auditorium. You will hear from policy experts on important issues for the legislative session. Among the presenters is Doreen Denny, Concerned Women for America (CWA)’s Senior Policy Advisor. Doreen will educate on the prohibition of gender modification for minors.
Noon – Rally on the Capitol South Steps. Speakers include Riley Gaines and Doreen Denny, addressing keeping biological men out of women’s sports; Abby Johnson, addressing pro-life issues; Corey DeAngelis, addressing School Choice for Texans.
1:00 p.m. – Box lunches distributed.
Afternoon – Visits to legislators’ offices. Over the past year, CWA of Texas has gathered citizens’ names on petitions to ask legislators to pass CWA of Texas priority bills. We need your help distributing the petitions to the offices!
Register here for the morning and afternoon activities and the box lunch ($5).

Proverbs 24:12 says, “If you say, ‘See, we did not know this,’ Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul? And will He not render to man according to his work?”
See you there!
