Sissy Farenthold: A life of courage and belief April 21, 2015

West University, Austin
Sissy Farenthold: A life of courage and belief, Austin, Texas

As you know, the Honorable Frances Tarlton “Sissy” Farenthold is a living Texas legend and an inspiration to people around the world. A group of her friends and admirers, including Hendler Lyons Flores, PLLC, have endowed a lecture series in her name. We invite you to be a part of it.

The lecture series, entitled The Frances Tarlton “Sissy” Farenthold Endowed Lecture Series in Peace, Social Justice and Human Rights will honor Sissy for leading a life of courage and belief by bringing to Texas internationally renowned scholars and thinkers who will inspire their audiences to  respond to some of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. It will be presented by the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the University of Texas Law School in Austin, and hosted in alternate years at the Rothko Chapel in Houston.

To date, we have raised nearly $50,000 to establish the endowment, and are now reaching out to invite you to help us reach our goal of $250,000. Donations and pledges of any amount are welcome.

Thanks you for helping us ensure Sissy's legacy continues to inspire the world for years to come!
