Texas Welcomes All, the Texas Association of Business, and a coalition of groups are fighting Senate Bill 6 (the so-called "bathroom bill") and 23 additional pieces of discriminatory legislation at the Texas Capitol. We are holding a major news conference with at least 100 Texas Women Leaders at the Capitol on Tuesday April 18, 2017 at 1 p.m. on the South Steps.
We are asking you join us at the Capitol on April 18, 2017 to stand up and speak out against discrimination.
The goal of this news conference is to take the two pillars of the Lt. Governor’s argument out of the debate. He claims this is a woman’s privacy issue. It is not. He claims this is a safety issue. It is not. Law enforcement officials from across the United States and right here in Texas have made clear that this is a solution in search of a problem.
We are mothers. We are small business owners and business executives. We are teachers. We are active in our communities, in local government and in our schools. We are faith leaders and actively involved win our respected houses of worship. We are conservatives, liberals and independents. We represent the rich diversity of our state and we reject attempts to divide us and to score political points through fear and misinformation.
Please join us for this important event. After we determine confirmations on your attendance, we will reach out to identify individual speakers from various professions and sectors of our economy.
