Texas Latino Organization Running Radio & Digital Ads in Support of Education Savings Accounts (ESA) Legislation
The LIBRE Initiative is a Strong Proponent of Educational Freedom
(Austin, TX) – The LIBRE Initiative, an organization committed to empowering the Latino community, announced plans to run radio and digital advertisements in support of Educational Savings Accounts, or ESAs – which allow families to use a portion of their tax dollars to customize their child’s education for various purposes including: extra tutoring, help pay for school supplies and cover private tuition costs.
The Texas Legislature is currently considering legislation that would enact ESAs in the State. The LIBRE Initiative is a strong proponent of educational freedom and Educational Savings Accounts (ESAs) because it helps all families – including Latino families – design an educational plan that works for each child.
The radio ads will run in several media markets including:
Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston-Galveston, McAllen-Brownsville-Harlingen and San Antonio.
Jorge Martinez, director of coalitions for The LIBRE Initiative, issued the following statement:
“The Texas Legislature is on the cusp of taking an important step in ushering greater parental and educational freedom by enacting ESAs, but there is considerable opposition that stands in the way before this becomes a reality.
This is why we are taking the airwaves to educate and activate the Hispanic community on why ESAs are an incredibly helpful tool to ensure every child is thriving and becoming lifelong learners.
Our community of activists and volunteers will mobilize all across the state to encourage Texas lawmakers to enact ESA legislation.”
