March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Montrose Center, 401 Branard St, Room 111
Houston, Texas 77006 United States

Governor’s Mansion, 1010 Colorado St
Austin, TX 78701 United States

Houston Independent School District is under threat. Governor Abbott and the Texas Education Agency want to take over our school district to increase standardized testing, shuffle teachers and principals, and close schools in marginalized communities.
