Texas NAACP To Kickoff America’s Journey For Justice

The following notice is from the Texas State Conference of NAACP Units

We in Texas are proud to support and be part of the Journey for Justice. This journey is an effort to achieve what for so long has been denied us--to simply be considered as full fledged American citizens throughout our nation and reclaim the Voting Rights that have been needlessly and wrongfully taken away.

This week marks the 150th anniversary of word of the Emancipation reaching Texas, but sadly we suffer invidious racial discrimination in Texas in education, criminal justice, voting rights, access to capital and many other areas of our lives. In Texas we have needed to become involved in 4 separate lawsuits since 2011 to simply seek the Voting Rights we should be guaranteed. It is time to move forward and change this for good.

Read more and get involved.

We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 1963, from his jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama
