Austin, TEXAS –State Representative Rhetta Andrews Bowers (HD 113) is excited to join Chairman Harold Dutton and the rest of her colleagues at the Texas Legislative Black Caucus for the bi-annual African American Legislative Summit next week. The theme for this year’s summit is "The Fierce Urgency of Now: State of Black Lives in Texas".

“I am very much looking forward to my first African American Legislative Summit as a member of the Texas Legislative Black Caucus. I know that Chairman Dutton has been hard at work organizing this year’s summit and I have no doubt that it will be a great success.”

This year’s summit is scheduled to start on Sunday, February 24th, and will end on Tuesday, February 26th. Some of the critical issues that will be discussed over the course of the summit include criminal and juvenile justice reform, mental health, public education, the 2020 census and redistricting. In addition, some of the notable events that will be happening include the Founders Gospel Reception on Sunday night, the Chair’s Gala on Monday night, and a press conference revealing the Texas Legislative Black Caucus’ legislative agenda for the 86th session on Tuesday morning.

“This summit is extremely important to me and my colleagues at the Texas Legislative Black Caucus because it allows us to meet with a large number of stakeholders and discuss how we can address the important issues that affect our community so that we may create a better Texas for every resident.”

I would like to personally invite you to register for the 2019 African American Legislative Summit. To register or view the schedule of events, you can do so at txlbc.org.
