Membership

The Texas Council on Family Violence’s African American Caucus has been recognized statewide by advocates for its work against violence in Texas year after year. This year proves not to be any different from any other. The African American Caucus is committed to our warm rich heritage, rejuvenation of spirit and souls, and critically thinking about and improving our roles in ending family violence in Texas for women of color. We welcome all activists of color to join the African American Caucus. For more information, please email membershipmatters@tcfv.org.
