On Thursday, February 15, join MFSA at Saint John’s UMC to learn about the power of political activism. Carolyn Boyle, a member of Saint John’s UMC, is one of the founders of the Texas Parent PAC, a bipartisan political action committee for parents, grandparents, parents-to-be, and anyone who supports high quality public education. Carolyn is a long-time advocate for public education, former PTA President, and Coordinator for the Coalition of Public Schools.
Carolyn and four other mothers, who were fed up with the Texas Legislature’s treatment of public education, formed the Texas Parent PAC in 2005. The statewide PAC seeks to elect more state legislators with the courage to stand up for children and neighborhood public schools. Endorsed candidates understand that children are our future, and lawmakers must adequately invest in education to ensure prosperity in Texas. The group has a track record of success, helping to elect 23 new members of the Texas Legislature. In each election cycle, Texas Parent PAC supports an equal number of candidates from both major political parties. Endorsed candidates reflect traditional mainstream American values that honor and support families, communities, democracy, and quality public education.

Come be inspired by Carolyn’s story of activism. Join us for snacks and conversation at 6:30pm and the program at 7:00pm.
