88th Texas Legislature

TNOYS has big plans to advocate for a cross-systems, youth-focused policy agenda during the 88th Texas Legislative Session. We look forward to building positive change that prevents systems-involvement, strengthens and improves systems that serve youth, and ensures that young people are best equipped to make the transition out of systems and into adulthood.

TNOYS’ policy agenda will be released soon. Subscribe to our newsletter for updates on our priorities, our work this session, and TNOYS Day of Action for Youth at the Texas Capitol.

TNOYS is bringing together youth, young adults, and staff at member organizations for a day of advocacy and action at the Texas Capitol. The day will begin with an overview of TNOYS’ policy priorities, followed by lunch and a panel with members of TNOYS’ Young Adult Leadership Council. Later in the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to meet with Texas legislators, share their lived and professional expertise, and advocate for change.

TNOYS has seen time and again the powerful change that happens when policymakers hear from both those serving youth on the ground, as well as young people who have lived experience in systems. We hope you’ll join us! Register here.
