5 GetEQUAL TX Activists Arrested for protesting for job protections

437 views 1 year ago
In the state of Texas
it is legal and common
practice to fire, refuse to hire,
or otherwise discriminate
against someone in the workplace
solely based on their sexual orientation,
gender identity, or gender expression.

Texas Senate Bill 237
"The Fair Employment Act"
Seeks to create a workplace
safe from these types of
discrimination


After numerous phone calls,
petitions, and emails SB 237
still sits in committee. Fearing
that the committee would not budge
GetEQUAL TX Activists payed a
visit to the 4 senators who are
holding it up.

5 of those activists were arrested for daring to speak truth to power.
Join the movement for full equality in all matters governed by civil law.
