From word of mouth, to the classic media of radio & TV, to, multi-media, together we spread the word on HB1938 and SB1128 from the community, to the classroom, to across the state and across the country. Senator Patrick and Representative Capriglione introduced these bills at the onset of Spring Break. They did not know that the Librotraficantes spend their Spring Break Freeing the American Imagination, last year in Arizona, and now in Texas.

We are very proud of the entire coalition. This is just the beginning. We will ensure that the components of HB1938 or SB11128 do not creep into other bills as the legislative session ends.

We will mark this victory Friday, May 10, on the Texas Capitol steps.

And there is more History in the making. Stay tuned for our announcement of the candidates who we will run for political office in November.
