The Texas Civil Rights Project, representing the Texas Organizing Project Education Fund (TOPEF), began litigation to challenge the recently adopted “show me your papers” law, Senate Bill 4.
Securing the right to vote has long been a struggle in Texas. The state continues to pass legislation with the intent and effect of discriminating against communities of color, with the ultimate result of disenfranchisement.
Through our Take Back the Vote efforts, TCRP is committed to bringing national awareness to voter suppression efforts and working to build the capacity of grassroots organizers and other advocates in Texas working to make sure every eligible voter can cast a ballot that counts. Learn more about our efforts.
Join us for speakers, conversation, and networking with other civil rights activists and advocates at the 27th annual Bill of Rights Dinner on Thursday, November 9, 2017.
