Generaciones de jóvenes texanos recordarán a los políticos que votaron en favor de atacar a sus padres, a sus abuelos, a sus comunidades. Este es nuestro hogar, estamos aquí para quedarnos, y esos políticos pagarán un precio muy caro. Durante esta semana y durante meses si es necesario, alzaremos nuestras voces en protestas, en reuniones comunitarias, en rallies alrededor del estado para denunciar SB4 por lo que es — una ley racista diseñada para perseguir a personas de color, para pisotear los derechos civiles y obligar a miles de texanos a convertirse en blanco de abusos y de discriminación racial. Unase a nosotros este domingo en el dia cuando honramos nuestras mamás valientes mientras resistemos el SB 4 en nuestro estado! Es tiempo para tomar accion y enseñarles el poder de nuestra comunidad! Vistese de color rojo y traiga su cartelon! Comparta con todos sus amigos y familia, y nos vemos en las calles! ____________________________________________________________ SB 4 is the “show me your papers” law that will transform Texas into the new Arizona — for the worse. Generations of young Texans will remember the politicians who voted to attack their parents, grandparents & communities. This is our home, we are here to stay and those politicians will pay the price. Throughout this week and beyond, we will rise up in protests, community meetings and rallies across the state to decry SB 4 for what it is — a racist law designed to target millions of Black and brown people, trample on civil liberties and force millions of Texans to vulnerable to racial profiling and abuse. Join us this Sunday on the day we honor our courageous mothers as we resist SB4 in our state! This is our time to take action and show them what community looks like! Wear a red shirt and bring a sign! Share this with all your friends and family, see you on the streets!
