On Tuesday, April 25, Texas Rising activists on campuses across Texas will join the movement to fight back against hate and discriminatory legislation at the Capitol.
Texas Rising is teaming up with GLAAD, Equality Texas, ACLU of Texas and Human Rights Campaign for Texas Students Against Hate, a series of rallies against LGBTQ discrimination. Here are the confirmed rallies on campuses where Texas Rising Activists are participating.
Texas State — RSVP on Facebook
UT-San Antonio — RSVP on Facebook
UT-Rio Grande Valley — RSVP on Facebook
University of Houston and University of Houston Downtown — RSVP on Facebook
UT-Austin — RSVP on Facebook
It’s a crucial time for LGBTQ equality in Texas. State lawmakers are pushing forward 25 bills that justify hate against LGBTQ Texans. Bills like SB6 and HB2899 permit open discrimination against transgender Texans and are aggressively targeting LGBTQ youth.
We hope you’ll be able to join us at an #EndHate rally near you.
If you can’t be there, sign the petition and tell lawmakers this state should be open and welcoming to all!
