Isaac Garcia, HRC San Antonio Field Organizer, hosted a letter writing party at La Botanica this past Thursday. HRC volunteers and activists gathered to write letters to Texas Governor Greg Abbott, urging him to oppose all anti-LGBTQ legislation in Texas. Thank you to La Botanica, a LGBTQ-owned business in San Antonio, for hosting us! Take a look at some of the photos below, and sign up to volunteer with HRC in Texas!
HRC field organizers in Texas have hit the ground running. Organizers in Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio are organizing to fight back against anti-LGBTQ legislation in Texas. Field organizers are bringing personal, individual stories from the front lines in Texas. Together with HRC members and supporters, they are mobilizing citizens to contact their legislators about the dangerous SB 6 and other anti-LGBTQ legislation.
HRC is currently tracking seven anti-LGBTQ bills in Texas, including SB 6 -- dishonestly titled the “Privacy Protection Act” -- a bill expressly intended to discriminate against and block facility access for transgender Texans.
