Join Food Empowerment Project, La Raza for Liberation, and Houston DSA EcoSocialists to say Shame on Safeway’s sister store Randall’s!
Did you know that when Safeway/Albertsons decides to leave a neighborhood, they sometimes block other grocery stores from opening up in their former locations? Some of these restrictions have been for as long as 15 years!
In honor of Human Rights Day, please join Food Empowerment Project at Randalls (sister store to Safeway) as we take a stand against a corporation that is impacting the health of communities of color and low-income communities.Find out more »
Come to City Council to demand the city to BACK OFF of a corporate takeover plan for four black and brown HISD schools.
The City of Houston has established a "nonprofit" astroturfed special interest group with the doublespeak title "Coalition for Educational Excellence and Equity in Houston", designed to mask the hostile corporate takeover over HISD schools. The registered agent is Juliet Stipeche, the Mayor's point person on education. The board comprises three wealthy right wing benefactors: Trini Mendenhall, Corbin Robertson Jr, and Stephanie Paige.
These people have NO BUSINESS being anywhere NEAR anything that is supposed to be for the public good, much less in control of the future of our children.Find out more »
In conjunction with the American Friends Service Committee, we have deep concern surrounding the treatment of families that are seeking asylum in the United States. We are seeking others with similar concerns to participate in the Love Knows No Borders week of action. We are focused on bringing attention to this pressing issue through love and nonviolence. Together, we are calling on the U.S. to end the detention and deportation of immigrants, respect the human right to migrate, and end the militarization of the border.Find out more »

Separation from a parent at Christmas time is difficult on any child but for the poor and innocent child, separated by a two inch plate of glass, it may be hardest of all. These blameless young enter a world of jailers and bars, cold and frightening, in a futile grasp at normalcy during perhaps the single most important family time of the year.
The emotional scars they experience and which may last a lifetime are ministered at Harris County Adult Detention Center by Santa Claus and several dozen elves who await these precious children as they walk out of the building. It is at this point that a miracle often occurs which can immediately be seen on the faces of these little ones. In the midst of the Fat Jolly Gentleman and piles of presents you can see their shaken faith in life return and a light of rekindled joy flicker in their eyes.Find out more »
