2019 Legislative Session and Homelessness Awareness Day Updates

We had one of our most successful sessions thanks to many of our THN Advocates, community partners, and staff. With close to 100 participants during Homelessness Awareness Day (HAD), and countless others during the session, THN met over 85% of all offices in the Texas legislator. These meetings and HAD sparked major conversations and helped shift the minds of legislators and staffers to homelessness as an issue to care about in their communities. In each meeting during session and during HAD, THN staff and advocates reviewed our legislative priorities agenda which supported many successes by the end of the session, including witnessing SB 234 and SB 289 being signed into law. THN’s main efforts focused on HB 3180 and SB 1116. While both were left pending in committee we learned valuable lessons on navigating our legislative processes. We feel proud of our efforts and hopeful for next session. Read more about this year’s HAD on the THN blog.

2019 Legislation & HAD Materials

Want to participate in planning of our next Homelessness Awareness Day?

During the Texas legislative session year (every odd year), THN hosts Homelessness Awareness Day (HAD) at the Capitol. Advocates from around the state meet at the Capitol for a briefing on legislative priorities, followed by meetings with their legislators. This is an opportunity to discuss our public policy priorities and update our senators and representatives on housing and homeless services in their community.

Email samantha@thn.org to get updates and stay in the loop on future planning activities.
