Join Us: Rally for Voting Rights at the Texas Capitol 11:00AM Monday, July 19

Rally for Voting Rights at the Texas Capitol

Monday, July 19, 11:00AM


Breakfast

Election training 8:30AM to 11AM July 19

Rally at the Capitol 11:00 AM

Optional evening program July 18




As I submit this, this rally and citizens’ lobby are still planned for Monday, July 19th. It takes on even more importance as plans are underway for enough legislators to prevent a quorum planning to leave Texas and go to Washington, D.C. in an attempt to slow or stop anti voting rights bills before the legislature. The principal sponsor of the event is Texas Impact, an interfaith group of which UUCBV is a part of through Texas UU Justice Ministry, and they are joined by the League of Women Voters and other groups. We hope to see lots of yellow Side with Love T-shirts at the Capitol.


This event includes 8:30 AM election training with the League of Women Voters, a rally from 11 AM to noon, and then legislative visits in the afternoon. Breakfast and a box lunch will be provided. For those able to head over to Austin overnight, there is an optional dinner program Sunday evening.

Did you know that, even without the pending new voting restriction rules,

TX already ranked dead last in the 2020 Cost of Voting Index, that measures the ease or difficulty of voting?

This index shows TX consistently has been on of the hardest states

to register and vote.

Did you know that TX also ranked 45th (in the bottom) for voter turnout?


For those who have no other important commitments Monday, we should rally together and learn what you can do to make sure eligible voters in your community can cast their ballots confidently—no matter what happens in the special session.

Remember the UUCBV 5th Principle:

"The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process;"
