HRC Texas; Y'all Means All; No Hate in Our State

The Texas House has adjourned its special session sine die without passing discriminatory SB3, the proposed bill that mandated HB2-style anti-transgender discrimination in bathrooms and overturned LGBTQ-inclusive non-discrimination ordinances. Read more here.

Throughout the year -- during the regular legislative session and now during the special session -- thousands of Texans spoke out against SB3 including, but not limited to: 27 Fortune 500 companies, nearly 500 faith leaders and 50,124 people through action by signing petitions or testifying against these harmful bills. Check out HRC's graphic highlighting the many voices that joined together.

We must continue to send a clear signal to Texas lawmakers that we are watching -- and we will not let this happen again. Contact your legislators and state leaders and tell them to oppose discriminatory legislation targeting LGBTQ Texas. 


HRC has seven field organizers and four offices across Texas who work to mobilize opposition to any anti-LGBTQ legislation.

HRC continues to work alongside Equality Texas, ACLU of Texas, Texas Freedom Network, the Transgender Education Network of Texas and others on the ground to battle against dangerous or harmful bills that attack the dignity of LGBTQ Texans. As a coalition, we will stand together; we will support and comfort one another; and we will continue to work together until we defeat every bill this session that discriminates against LGBTQ Texans.
