enBOLDenHER: Ready to Research?

Tuesday, October 11, 2022
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Now that you've planned your message, what background research do you need to do? How do you prepare for delivering your message?

Tanya Lavelle will be leading the first half of this workshop, discussing techniques to know when and how to speak to legislators and policymakers to have the best outcomes. Immediately following, we will offer breakout rooms based on areas of policy likely to be of interest to Texas women: voting rights, reproductive rights, healthcare access, and more.

Tanya is a native Texan. She graduated with a BA in Political Science from the George Washington University in Washington, DC, and spent two years working for multiple women's rights organizations before returning home to attend the LBJ School of Public Affairs. She has spent her career in the nonprofit space advocating on behalf of marginalized populations, including people with disabilities and low-income Texans. Tanya joined the staff of Disability Rights Texas in October 2020, and is currently the Policy Specialist for the Housing, Transportation and Disaster Team working to protect the housing rights of low income Texans with disabilities. In her spare time Tanya enjoys baking for local nonprofits and attempting to keep up with her two little boys.
