PACT, the Personal Attendant Coalition of Texas, is really busy these days. PACT has started a Texas Attendant Project to recruit attendants and supporters of attendants to add their voices and faces to the call for decent wages for community attendants in Texas. TAP contact people will be working in nine regions around the state, TAP will be working with the Texas Centers for Independent Living (who have been terrifically supportive) and other community groups in addition to many individuals.

There is a petition in English and Spanish you can download and collect signatures of folks who support better wages.
