Gonna be in Austin for South By? Come join UJ*, the ACLU, and the National Youth Rights Association on the south steps of the Texas State Capitol on March 15th at 4:00pm to rally against corporal punishment in schools!
There’s more – earlier that day, Texas State Representative Alma Allen is going to introduce HB 916 - a bill to ban CP in Texas schools. Given that Texas is the state with the most students paddled each year, the introduction of this bill is HUGE!
It’s going to be up to us, the UJ* Activists, to see that this bill gets signed. Head over to the ACTIVATE page and click on the state of Texas to start calling, emailing, and faxing Texas state reps and tell them to support HB 916.
