Texas lawmakers are turning lies into laws

This year, state lawmakers claimed to protect religious freedom when they allowed discrimination against LGBTQ Texans. They claimed to stand for women’s safety when they attacked transgender people. They claimed to use scientific evidence when they passed another unnecessary abortion restriction. They claimed that requiring unconstitutional policing of immigrant communities was about public safety.

All of these legislative measures had one goal: to turn a lie into a law.

Throughout November, Texas Rising is hosting a series of campus forums across the state to call out the lies. Join us to hear from movement experts about the impact of turning lies into laws and what young Texans can do about it.
