Join us to kick off our campaign for abortion access and reproductive justice in Houston and Harris County. Houstonians will share their experiences accessing abortion and being faced with reproductive oppressions through personal storytelling.
Together, let's envision a Houston and a Texas in which there is widespread public support for abortion access, racial, economic, and gender justice, equitable pay & leave policies, justice for undocumented people, and more!
Repro Power Houston is part of a multi-city initiative led by the Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity, the Texas Equal Access Fund, the West Fund and NARAL Pro-Choice Texas to build a groundswell of support for abortion access and reproductive justice in local communities.Find out more »

Houstonians- UNITE! Join Indivisible Houston, PSR Houston, FIEL and other allied groups Saturday, June 30th at 10 AM for a rally at City Hall and march to Ted Cruz’s office to show solidarity with families and opposition to burdensome, ignorant, divisive immigration law.
The horrors of the deportation machine and the Administration’s decision to kidnap children and use them as pawns in exchange for a fantasy real estate construction project along the southern border rip apart families and destroy communities.
Join us to demand that our publicly elected employees take the following actions:
1) End the new DHS policy of family separation in order to REUNITE FAMILIES;
2) Vote against the Goodlatte Immigration plan;
3) Defund ICE (an agency established after 9/11 with expanded powers beyond standard
customs checks and enforcement); and
4) End private prison donations and require reps return all private prison donations- both individual and PAC.

What does justice look like for you? We're inviting organizations working for justice regarding violence, ethnicity, gender, the criminal justice system, age, health, education, socio-economic and wage gap, housing, immigration, environmental, representational democracy (anti-gerrymandering!), and more.

We live in a city where asylum seekers are being kept in detention centers, one of which lies just outside Downtown and is housing teenagers indefinitely. These centers are run by the Southwest Key Programs, whose leaders are profiting off of the detainment of children and have yet to share adequate information about the conditions in these centers. We, as Houstonians, are obligated to come together to stand with the migrants in our city and call out maltreatment of migrants when it occurs.
The rally will be held on Saturday September 14, tentatively from 5:30-8:30pm at the Casa Sunzal detention center (419 Emancipation Ave). We will meet at Settegast Park (3000 Garrow St) at 5:30pm and walk for about 5-10 minutes to the detention center.Find out more »
