Hundreds of LGBTQ people of color & immigrants are heading to the Texas State Capitol in Austin on Friday August 4th to protest the obscene bills SB 3 & SB 4 that target our transgender & immigrant communities. The #HereToSlay action, organized by local groups Aquí Estamos RGV & Organización Latina de Trans in Texas (OLTT) & national organizations Transgender Law Center and Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement, will feature a rally, press conference & march into the capitol building to send the message that our communities are united for a safer, more just Texas. Dani Marrero of Aquí Estamos RGV stated, “Nobody should have to live in fear just because of who they are. We are going to the capitol to demand that our legislators stop singling us out for discrimination & harassment. Whether we are immigrants, transgender people, people of color or all of the above, we are part of families & communities across the state & we deserve a fair chance.” The event takes place Friday, August 4th from 10A to 3P. The rally starts at 10A, press conference starts at 11A & action on capitol begins at high noon at the Texas State Capitol in Austin, TX.
