Advocacy and Resistance Events at the Texas State Capitol

Since Trump has taken office, Texans across the state have taken action to stand up to his politics or fear and hate — we have come together as the resistance.

But Trump isn’t alone in pushing for policies that divide and discriminate — Texas Republicans in our state legislature have pursued the very same backwards agenda for years. The legislature is in session until the end of May, and Texas Republicans — including Gov. Greg Abbott and Lt. Gov Dan Patrick — are more emboldened than ever by Trump in the White House.

Join the resistance and show the GOP in our Capitol that they do not represent our values. Find an issue that’s important to you and register for an advocacy and resistance event:
