Raise Your Hand Texas is proud to host candidate forums solely focused on public education. Our For the Future candidate forums provide an opportunity for Texans to educate themselves on the issues and be informed voters on election day. The forums are specifically geared toward education topics and let participants know where candidates stand on some of the most pressing issues facing our public schools. The forums are organized and hosted by our Regional Advocacy Directors for Texas Legislature elections, or run-off elections, in their respective regions. All candidates on the ballot for the district are invited to participate, and no candidates are endorsed.
These candidate forums are free to attend because Raise Your Hand Texas believes it is important for all voters to have access to the information they need to make an educated decision when they go to the ballot box. The Texas Legislature plays a large role in shaping the requirements and resources of every public school in the state, and an informed electorate is important to making sure decisions made at the Capitol impacting our students and teachers are in their best interest.
Every election is an education election, and Raise Your Hand Texas is proud to present these candidate forums as a way for voters to educate themselves on the issues and candidates when it comes to education and supporting our public schools.
