National Day Laborer Organizing for March in Texas – Sept. 2

National Day Laborer Organizing Network – News & Updates

Hi Friends,

In Texas and across the country, people are coming together for a unity rally in Austin, Texas on September 2nd. Will your organization join the effort?
Texas is the new ground zero in the fight for immigrant rights and for Latino equality. The politics of racism, scapegoating, and xenophobia are emboldened, and the risk of it spreading to other states is real. The governor has already signed legislation mandating racial profiling, threatened legal action to end legal protections for Dreamers, and endorsed the repugnant strategy that seeks to make life unbearable for Latinos so that they “self-deport” from the state.

In the face of these attacks, the response from our sisters and brothers in Texas has been inspiring. Immigrant and civil rights leaders are organizing in unprecedented ways, and together, sending a clear message that communities will defy this extremist agenda.

In support of our members, partners, and those fighting from the bottom-up, we launched #BastaTexas – a website, a frame, and a hub to lift up and connect bold, creative, and effective efforts to resist and overcome the attacks on immigrants and people of color.

On September 2, we are joining efforts to plan a unity march, rally, and concert in Austin.
Will you endorse the September 2nd action and help us build a movement to turn the tide in Texas?
Endorse the event here. And share the FB event.

PS. And if you’re ready to travel to key cities in Texas to help organize for the coming weeks, let us know, and join the Freedom Summer volunteers!
