Yesterday's One Texas Resistance Rally

I’m so energized by the grassroots momentum at the One Texas Resistance Rally yesterday.

Texans are demanding real solutions for our families and fighting back against hateful Republican legislation. Here are some of my favorite photos from yesterday:

We heard from real people whose families and communities are in peril, if Republicans get their way. Wendy, who is just 9 years old, was at our capitol during her summer break to protect her parents from SB4. Reverend Carmarion Anderson, a grandmother, is fighting for transgender Texans, like her, to simply use the bathroom. Lisa Flores, who is the mother of a child with a disability, was calling out Republicans for using disabled kids, like her autistic child, to push their radical voucher agenda.

The fired-up crowds at rallies across Texas are evidence of the incredible wave we’re seeing. It’s critical that we do everything we can to carry this energy over the next 29 days of the Special Session and into the 2018 election.

This is our moment. We must show Republicans who want to cause our communities harm that we’re not backing down. Our families’ futures depend on all of us doing everything we can.

I’m asking you to make sure we have the resources we need to take back our state. Will you rush a $7 contribution right now:
