#2 Wednesday, July 19, 10 to 11 a.m. Quinceañera at the Capitol

From Jolt! Texas:

Join us on Wednesday, July 19, at the South Steps of the Texas Capitol for Quinceañera at the Capitol. Come and rally around 15 young women who will share the 15 reasons that they’re resisting SB4. We’re going to combat hate and racism by celebrating Latino culture.

PROGRAM

10:00 AM – 10:05 AM Procession

10:05 AM – 10:10 AM Welcome & remarks

10:10 AM – 10:25 AM Dance performance

10:25 AM – 10:30 AM Call to action & procesion

10:30 AM – 11:00 AM Quinceañeras deliver gifts to authors of SB4

~~~

In Latino culture, Quinceañeras are an important tradition that highlight the bonds of family, community, culture and bring people together through celebration.

This is the spirit of the Quinceañera at the Capitol event: to celebrate the resistance to SB4 by highlighting our commitment to our communities and culture. After all, SB4 isn’t just about politics: it will sow fear and distrust into our communities and break apart our families. To resist this harmful and hateful law, we will draw on the incredible power within the very communities that SB4 will affect.
