It’s the final day of the Texas Legislature’s special session – and time to rally loudly for voting rights! The federal Voting Rights Act was signed into law 46 years ago on Aug. 6, but now Texans face unprecedented attacks on their right to vote. Join us at the Capitol in Austin on the final day of the Texas Legislature’s special session as we rally to defend our vote and celebrate the legacy of President Lyndon Johnson and the Voting Rights Act! Hosts of this event include Public Citizen, Common Cause, Reform Immigration for Texas Alliance, Progress Texas, the Austin NAACP, the office of Texas Rep. Gina Hinojosa and the Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra Club.
