Texas Capitol community rallies around Atlas Kravitz after devastating fire

More than $20,000 raised in two days for tireless advocate for Texas teachers

Many of you have purchased her art. Some of you have jousted with her on social media. Virtually all of you know her as a tireless advocate for Teachers in Texas.

Laura Atlas Kravitz, who lobbies for the Texas State Teachers Association and is a former staffer to Sen. Nathan Johnson, barely survived an apartment fire this past weekend that took the life of her longtime companion, Duke, her dog of about a decade.

To say it is devastating is an understatement. She lost virtually everything.

One of her friends set up an online fundraiser this weekend and it was promoted on Twitter on the #Txlege hashtag – a hashtag that so often divides us rather than brings us together. In this case, so many of you stepped up to help that the fund grew quickly to help her rebuild after this terrible accident. The fundraiser is still online here, in case you were not already aware of it and want to help as well.

Thanks so much to everyone – SB.
