CALL TO ACTION: Texas House Democratic Caucus Members to Host Statewide Civil Rights Protests

Texas House Democratic Caucus Members to
Host Statewide Civil Rights Protests

On Saturday, April 22, Texas House Democratic Caucus members will host individual rallies in Austin, Houston, San Antonio, El Paso, and Plano. Community members are invited to attend to protest against major legislative efforts to roll back civil rights of communities across Texas.

Rep. Gene Wu (D-Houston) issued the following statement: 
“Our communities have fought, bled, and sometimes died fighting for our civil rights over the past century. It has only been recently that our communities have had a seat at the table. Now, there are dozens of pieces of legislation to roll back the rights that we have earned. They are telling us we are no longer welcome at the table and we should go back to begging for scraps. We refuse.”

Rep. Mihaela Plesa (D-Collin County) issued the following statement:
\”Collin County, and Texans across our state, are rejecting extremism, divisive politics, and the politics of hatred and injustice. House Democrats are standing up for the people — hard working families, children, teachers, health care workers, first responders, small businesses. House Democrats are focused on bread and butter issues like public education, economic development, women’s healthcare, voting rights, and public safety while our colleagues on the other side are focused on red meat hyper partisan issues. This day of action should send a clear message to Texas Republican leadership.”

Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer (D-San Antonio) issued the following statement:
“House Democrats will not stand idly by as Republicans try to turn back the clock on hard fought rights. Across the state, the Texas GOP is targeting all that makes our state the best in the nation. Texas is one of the most diverse states in the nation and a state becoming more diverse with every day. And if you don’t like that, then move because we certainly aren’t.
