With General Conference behind us and the November Election and the 83rd Texas Legislature ahead of us, this year’s focus for the SWTX Chapter of MFSA will include State and Federal issues. Upcoming meeting topics include the following:
- Voter ID Laws – What is the possible impact in Texas and other states on the November election?
- Death Penalty – What is our response? Seminar with Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking, in October.
- Environmental Stewardship – What is “fracking” and what is its possible environmental impact?
- Immigration – How do churches respond?
- Racism – How can we become involved in local actions to improve racial relations?
- Gun Control – How do we start a conversation about guns and violence?
Some of our action items will include volunteering for voter registration, BOPA recycling event, Pride Parade, MLK March, and legislative actions. Join us as we explore the possibilities of change as we work together for social justice!
