Help Labor Help

Environmentalists and democracy activists are asking Governor Abbott to veto House Bill 3557. This dangerous legislation may severely limit our right to protest. Buses are being organized around the state to go to Austin on Saturday, June 15. The Dallas bus leaves at 8 AM from 9125 Diceman Drive.

Write a quick email to Governor Abbott

Similar bills are either passed or being considered in a number of other states. Apparently, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is behind it. Texas labor opposed the bill strenuously. Our only chance to stop it is with a veto. Your letter can help.
