The MLK Grande Parade In Houston’s Midtown Is One Of The Largest Single Day Multicultural Events In The U.S. That Is Held In Honor Of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
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.
Join us Saturday, May 4th to march from Renwick and Bellaire to Burnett Bayland Park for a rally in celebration of International Workers Day.
Together, we will build solidarity across our differences to honor the legacy of all working people in continuing to fight for immigrant, racial, economic, and environmental justice in a system that puts profit over people.
When you participate in a Fight For Air Climb event, you are stepping up to make a positive impact for those affected by lung disease. You will raise funds to support the American Lung Association’s mission while climbing the stairs of a skyscraper.
Whether you are climbing alone or with friends and family, for a healthier lifestyle or in honor of all those who are affected by lung disease, you will achieve a sense of personal accomplishment when you reach the top. Defeating the physical challenge and reaching the height of your fundraising potential will be a gratifying experience. Every Step Counts as we move forward in our fight for healthy lungs and clean air!
In 2018, we worked together to bring an unprecedented wave of voters and candidates to the midterm elections. In 2019 we’re doubling down on the call for justice in our world with the 2019 Houston Women March For Justice Saturday, January 19, 2019.
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. During the 2019 Houston Women March For Justice, you’ll have the opportunity to join thousands of people to take actions for justice, and to learn how help people and organizations in our region.
