“We are in the fight of our lives!” --Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy



At the Special Session Advocacy Training on July 12, the Texas AFL-CIO outlined several of the imminent dangers awaiting passage in the current Texas Legislature Special Session. Voter rights are the biggest issue, but not the only one. Rick Levy said that there is no way to predict when and where public actions will be needed. He called for Rapid Response Teams to be set up all over the state.  North Texans are encouraged to sign up for our Solidarity Brigade.
