The 87th Texas Legislature was conducted under the most unique and difficult time for tenants in recent memory. With this in mind, advocates and public officials took to the Capitol to testify and work on policy that advanced justice for low-income individuals and families who are in critical need of protections for safe and affordable housing and opportunities to live in a decent home of their choosing.
To recap the recently concluded Texas Lege session, Texas Housers was joined by three tireless housing advocates who spoke about what they were proud to accomplish during the session, what work still lies ahead, and more.
Rep. Jon Rosenthal (D-Houston, District 135)
Sen. Sarah Eckhardt (D-Austin, District 14)
Sandy Rollins, Texas Tenants’ Union
Christina Rosales, Deputy Director of Texas Housers
