The next meeting of the democracy-killing HISD Board of Managers is Thursday, 6/22, at 5:30 PM.
Community Voices For Public Education has information about the meeting & how to sign up to speak in-person or on Zoom.
The Board restricted public entry and had a member of the public arrested at the most recent meeting.
It is essential that the rank & file public bear witness to the relentless assaults on democracy in Houston and Harris County.
Most Houston City Council incumbents and candidates have been silent about the takeover. They have not organized people to attend the meetings or responded to the loss of an elected school board with any sense of urgency in what was just 60 years ago a Jim Crow city.
The Houston Democracy Project will in July send a letter to every Democrat running for Houston municipal office in 2023. This letter will ask the candidates how they will respond to the erosion of democracy in Houston and Harris County. (There will also be a letter to Republicans later this summer.)
This letter will go to candidates for Mayor, Controller, City Council and the Houston Community College Board. The responses ( Or lack of.) will be shared on the Houston Democracy Project.
Please consider your role as a Houstonian in this fight.
Please support the Houston Democracy Project.
