Texas is the most deadly and dangerous state for construction workers’ to work in the country, but WDP is working to change this.

Each legislative session WDP works to defeat bills that harm workers and pass bills that will better protect the organization’s members.

WDP also conducts a statewide lobby day each legislative session where WDP members and allies visit the offices of all 150 legislators, the Governor and the Lieutenant governor in favor of the organization’s legislative agenda. The Lobby Day is from 10am-3pm and includes training. Please register at the ticketing link below for the Lobby Day.

In conjunction with our 2017 lobby day, WDP will hold a statewide action: Day of the Fallen, to remember the workers who have been injured and killed building our state and to engage a broad base of supporters. This year will mark the 4th Day of the Fallen and it is as critically important as ever to highlight the dangerous conditions that Texas workers face and to call for Texas to do more to protect them.
