Lady Bird Johnson wanted to improve the quality of life for others. She brilliantly used her national platform to illuminate the importance of racial acceptance and Civil Rights. She co-founded Project Head Start to assist underserved children, and she laid groundwork for the modern environmental movement by addressing more than 300 conservation measures passed into law during the Johnson Administration.
“Honoring our Texas Lady” seeks to teach about Mrs. Johnson’s life and lead by her example, motivating acts of kindness… whether the acts assist underserved citizens, provide to military-veteran community, show respect for diversity, or improve the environment. The goal is to make your community a better place – leave it better than you found it.
To further honor the legacy of Lady Bird Johnson, the 2021-2022 State Project shall benefit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, Community Partnership Program, which reduces fees for underserved youth and their families.
