Showing up for Racial Justice (SURJ HTX) invites you to learn how to join and unite with the Native Original Tribe of Texas in a respectful way in the massive efforts to protect our state from environmental and political destruction. The Carrizo/Comecrudo Tribe is repopulating a network of frontline encampments on their ancient village sites, protecting indigenous sacred sites, resisting construction of the LNG (fracked gas) terminals and their source of pipelines for more fracked gas, and educating people about the environmental devastation the Border Wall will cause. They are peacefully struggling to stop the senseless endangerment of people, animals our only environment and for a rapid equitable transition to sustainable/renewable natural ways of life to secure a future for all children and our future generations.
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!

Join us for a candlelight vigil to honor the memory of the 95 enslaved prisoners whose bodies were discovered in Sugar Land this spring. We stand in solidarity with all the African-American men and women who were trapped in the horrific system of convict leasing here in Sugar Land and across the Southern United States. We will gather at 5 and light our candles at 5:30.
Bring family and friends. We hope to light at least 95 candles to represent each of the 95 individuals and raise awareness of this tragic chapter of our shared history.
The Hobby School Civitas Project presents this award-winning HBO Documentary on the story of Breaion King, a 26 year-old African-American school teacher from Austin, who is stopped for a routine traffic violation that escalates into a dramatic arrest.
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.
The Dominican Sisters of Houston invite you to join us as we continue and deepen the conversation around race.
