Volunteers Embark on a Road Trip with Heart!


Texas advocates embarked on an epic road trip in August of 2016, traveling across our big state in search of Congressional supporters and cosponsors, and thanking others for their decision to support our federal level advocacy priorities in the 114th Congress. During the trip we kicked off our boots and met with:

Congressman Marc Veasey – Ft. Worth (July 21). Meeting with the Congressman were volunteers Tara Robinson, Denise Smith Ladd, and LaShanda A. Davis, accompanied by staff member Aschelle Morgan.

Congressman Blake Farenthold – Corpus Christi (July 28). Meeting with the member was volunteer Carol Scott, along with staff Erin Wilder (Corpus Christi Executive Director) and Advocacy Team member Kaitlyn Murphy.

Congressman Sam Johnson – Plano (August 11). Meeting with Congressman Johnson’s staff were volunteers LaVera Caston, Beatriz Champagne, Towry Barnard, and Elaine Bullard. They were accompanied by Grassroots Director, Victoria Nelson.


Congressman Joe Barton – Arlington (August 17). We met with staff from Representative Barton’s district office, alongside volunteers Connie Kerr and Ruma Brown. Victoria Nelson also tagged along for this one.


Congressman John Carter – Round Rock (August 25). We met with the Congressman in this meeting, and included volunteers Andy Martinez, JJ Parker and Jeff Parker. They brought along AHA Local Policy Manager, Kelsey Bernstein.

Congressman Beto O’Rourke – El Paso (August 26). We wrapped up our Texas road trip with another member meeting with Congressman O’Rourke. Volunteer Annette, Torres joined Voices For Healthy Kids Campaign Director, Christopher Walker.
