WHAT: The #TogetherJuntos Caravan to Austin will bring together hundreds of residents from cities across Texas to denounce Governor Greg Abbott’s racist and white supremacist policies and tactics against immigrants, people of color, and other marginalized groups, and call for the implementation of policies that address the real issues facing the state and prioritize the well-being of all Texans. The two-day caravan will include a press conference prior to departure in El Paso; a car rally and action outside U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar’s office in San Antonio; and actions outside the Texas Capitol and Governor’s mansion and a closing rally in Austin.
