Angela's philosophy is now embodied in Choose2Matter, a powerful call to action that invites people to make mattering a way of life. It has become a popular social movement across the United States, and in particular in the State of Texas. Please join us to learn how Choose2Matter is implemented in schools and supported by parents.
