Join Reginald Moore and the Convict Leasing and Labor Project for a community meeting about the future of the #SugarLand95. The CLLP and the National Black United Front of Houston strongly believe the remains should be reburied in the sacred ground where they were found. Fort Bend ISD is doing everything it can to block that from happening.

We need to show FBISD, Houston and the world this isn't just a "black" issue. They can't just plan a quick "Black History Month" presentation and be done with it. This is one of the most important local issues of our time and the outcome is going to shape our awareness of racial history for decades to come.

Tell the Mayor No Hostile Corporate Takeover of HISD

December 11, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Houston City Hall, 901 Bagby Street
Houston, 77002
+ Google Map

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.

Christmas at the Jail 6

December 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Houston, TX United States + Google Map
Free

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.
