TRTA Day at the Capitol 2023 is Here! How You Can Help – Texas Retired Teachers Association

The Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) is ready for our exciting Day at the Capitol event today, April 12, 2023!

TRTA expects more than 1,000 retired public educators to join us on the East Lawn to meet with legislators, advocate for a much-needed cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) and enjoy fellowship during an old-fashioned ice cream social!

TRTA IS THE VOICE FOR TEXAS PUBLIC EDUCATION RETIREES, and we want to be seen and heard today!

How to Participate if You Cannot Attend in Person

Though many of our retirees would like to attend this event, not all are able. We want your voice to be heard today too! Here are some ways you can participate and promote the causes that matter most to retired educators.

  1. Call Your Legislators Today!

If you are unable to send an email or prefer the phone, please call your legislator today. You can find phone numbers for your legislators by using this website.

Please let them know education retirees appreciate their hard work this session, and we want to show our gratitude by inviting them to our ice cream social on the east lawn! The social begins at Noon.

Legislators and their staff members should feel free to stop by anytime between Noon and 2:00 p.m. to say hello to constituents, offer a few words of encouragement, and enjoy some Amy’s Ice Cream!

  1. Download and mail the TRTA Day at the Capitol Flyer to Your Legislators!

Consider downloading our Day at the Capitol Fact Page and mailing it to your legislators. Though many members will hand deliver this flyer today, we want ALL legislators to receive one!
