GetEQUAL TX says
Freedom in Texas is under attack by an extremist agenda that seeks to keep some Texans from exercising what should be their inalienable rights.
Some of our lawmakers are working on passing a bill similar to the one in Indiana that allows businesses to refuse service to people for whatever reason, so long as they claim they have a deeply held religious belief. These bills are also known as "Religious Freedom Restoration Acts" (RFRA) in national conversations.

Other bills making their way are working against immigrants, women's reproductive freedom, the freedom to marry, and many other groups of Texans who are seeking nothing more than equality under the law. We are beginning to see more "Bathroom bills" that are meant to restrict transgender people's equal access to public accommodations.

Our legislature is doing its best to do the exact opposite of what fair minded Texans are asking... Now it's time that we rally together and DEMAND the equality and freedom that Texans deserve.

Confirmed Speakers:
Julie Gillis will Emcee the event
Heather Ross (GetEQUAL TX)
Steve Adler (Mayor of Austin)
Fatima Mann (Activist)
Jan Soifer (Travis County Democratic Party Chair)
Omar Lopez (Activist)
Glen Maxey (First Openly Gay State Representative)

UPDATE: HavenCon has invited everyone to their after party at 9PM. There is a $5.00 cover charge, half of which is going to come back to GetEQUAL TX so that we can continue to do the work that we do. Please join the Geeks in solidarity after this Rally at Holliday Inn Midtown https://www.facebook.com/events/431327153709845/
