In a few short weeks, Texans Standing Tall will be hosting our annual Statewide Summit to create healthier and safer communities.
These two days are a huge opportunity to bring together partners, experts, and youth for in-person collaboration and information sharing. Subjects range from the link between alcohol and breast cancer to a discussion on youth substance abuse and its relationship to the justice system.
We encourage everyone to sign up for this special event because we think it’s a great way to bring people together to create positive community change. And, as much as we love our Summit and want to tell you all about it, we think past attendees are a better way to hear about the Summit experience:
“The Summit was well organized and provided a unique learning experience to attendees by allowing their participation in breakout sessions. The guest speaker presentations were interesting and provided useful information for attendees. The youth coalition members did a great job on their involvement as co-host and presenters at the Summit.
-Sipriano Gutierrez, Coalition Coordinator, Hockley County VOICES Coalition
“When I attend any conference or Summit, I do so with the intention of receiving information about prevention opportunities that will help me mentor the youth in my community. This particular Summit intrigues me because I am able to mentor others while highlighting the great work of many coalitions across our State. The networking opportunities are endless.”
-Sylvia Garcia, Law Enforcement Instructor, CCTE, EPISD

We hope to see you in Austin next month!
