Texas Family Defense Committee welcomes parent advocates/activists Missie Carra and Christi Beck on Thursday, January 26, 2023, in the Big Dam Room of the beautiful Myrtle Wilks Community Center, 1498 West I 20, Cisco. Doors open at 5:30; the meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. Missie and Christi will discuss “school choice,” ideas circulating in the legislature, and what they could mean for public, charter, private and home school students. Missie Carra was inspired to become a parent advocate/activist following a personal experience with radical agendas and ideologies inside public schools. Since then, she has participated in State and National level efforts as an advocate for parent’s rights and protection of children from harmful elements of indoctrination. She’s passionate about educating others about these issues, as well as sharing resources and available supports to help make informed decisions about a child’s education and healthcare.
Christi Beck is a Texas certified teacher (PreK-6th grade) who taught in the public school system for 6 years. She is married to her husband, John, for 25 years and together they have two children. Their family’s educational journey began in public school but after a few years, withdrew them and Christi homeschooled them through high school.
Christi is active in the community. She volunteers as a client advocate at a local pregnancy center, co-leads the Future Hope Task Force and is a commissioned Colson Fellow who is currently serving on the leadership team in a local cohort. She also attends and speaks at Fort Worth ISD school board meetings and has recently gotten more involved in politics with her husband who is a precinct chair.
Christi is passionate about sharing her experiences from public school teacher & PTA parent to alternative education advocate for families and parents. She provides support, encouragement and resources that empower parents to make the best educational decisions for their children.
Join us Thursday in Cisco to learn more about “school choice” and its likely impact on education.
