Texas League Advocates for Fairness

On Wednesday, April 6,, the Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund and members from over 40 organizations and concerned individuals from all over the State gathered at the Texas State Capitol for a March, Rally and Lobby Day.
Osadeba Omokaro, Texas League’s Prairie View organizer and student at Prairie View A&M University, told the crowd about devastating cuts to education and the importance of young voters to contact their elected officials and make their voices heard.

United under the “Save our State” mobilization and the Texas Forward Coalition, the organizations are called for the Texas Legislature to show real leadership by adopting a balanced approach to the state budget. A balanced approach means canceling plans for devastating budget cuts in education; unfair pieces of Voter ID and targeted immigration legislation and fair redistricting for fair representation.
