*Update* We are rescheduling our TEA Dinner this week to Wednesday, Sept 13. Hope everyone is staying safe and with food/supplies. If you need assistance (translators, food/supplies, resource information), please let us know!
Please join OCA-Greater Houston, friends, family, and community partners on Sept. 13 at Mezban Restaurant at 7PM for our first installment of TEA Dinners, a sub program of TEA Talks! With the upcoming November Houston Independent School District (HISD) Board of Trustee elections coming up and the State Legislature special session just ending, we will discuss the ramifications of recent passed state (e.g. SB4, Voucher Program, etc) and local policy that impact our students in HISD as well as ways for our community voice their opinions/concerns on the matter through civic engagement.
We will have volunteer deputy voter registrars on site to register voters!
*Note — Guests must pay for their own dinners at the restaurant!
TEA Dinners is a series of educational dinners aimed to galvanize and educate the AAPI voting population to understand current issues and for them to register and vote in upcoming elections.
We hope to have current HISD Board of Trustees, students, and teachers/staff in attendance for their perspectives.
