On Saturday, Aug. 27, March For Our Lives will rally with parents from Uvalde, as well as survivors from Santa Fe, and youth activists from across the country to demand action to end gun violence.
The rally, which starts at 11 a.m. on the South steps of the state Capitol in Austin, will demand Gov. Greg Abbott take immediate action and call a special session to pass legislation that will raise the minimum age to purchase an AR-15 — a policy change that we know from our own surveying is overwhelmingly popular among Texas school employees and Texans at large.
Texas AFT hopes to see many of our members in attendance. RSVP online to get the full details and let us know you’re coming.
