ABC 13 Houston Coverage of Our Community Planning Meeting: Controversial 'Mexican-American Heritage' textbook at center of fightInside a small room at
the TBH, an east end theater, opponents of a textbook on Mexican heritage were
mobilizing. - http://abc13.com/1601619/
They are ready to tell the Texas State Board of Education to vote down the deceptively titled textbook "Mexican American Heritage" by Momentum Publishing and to vote to re-open the call for culturally relevant textbooks.
There are also 48 others from Houstno ready to join and support them.
We hope you will too.
We are asking you to donate to pay for the bus.
We are renting a bus to take folks to testify back to Austin Tuesday, Nov. 15, including over a dozen students who will testify.
We need to $2,000 to rent the bus, and we have $885 committed so far.
Can you donate and/or help us get sponsors?
Sorry for the short notice, but the elections have overshadowed this issue, which makes our work even more important.
Of course, we need full funding by Monday to pay for the bus.
So we would need either a check or cash donation. Paypal will work, too.

Thanks for you support in the past. I look forward to uniting to close the deal on this together.
