‼️The County’s use of prison labor at local morgues is appalling to say the least. You can take action this Wednesday by calling into Commissioners Court at 9 am for public comment. We must hold our County officials accountable for the atrocities occurring in our community ‼️

233 positive cases in a single DAY? El Paso’s COVID-19 data is terrifying to say the least. We stand in condemning Governor Greg Abbott and Mayor Dee Margo in their response to this global pandemic. More needs to be done to ensure that frontline workers are protected (WITH HAZARD PAY), and non essential businesses are closed. There is absolutely no reason for some of y’all to be at cinci during a global crisis. People are quite literally dying. Do your part. Wear you mask and STAY HOME.

Four detainees have tested positive for COVID-19 at the El Paso Processing Center. The response provided has been inadequate, detainees are in serious harm. Every day that immigrants remain detained poses a serious health threat to their safety. Join us in demanding the immediate release of all immigrants currently detained in ICE facilities. We will be hosting two text banks this week to help get folks to call ICE facilities and demand detainees be released. Will you join us?

While campus life feels really distant for a lot of us right now, we can still ensure that our voices are heard at the polls. As an organization, Texas Rising stands for voting rights, LGBTQ+ equality, reproductive justice, immigration reform, climate justice, and criminal justice reform. We feel that this is important to share, because of the dozens of candidates running to represent the student body, only two students reached out to us about their interest in these values. We have not endorsed any political party in this race, but we were able to meet with two candidates that have social justice plans for the Student Government:

JJ Martinez - WRITE IN Candidate for Vice President of Internal Affairs

Michael Gutierrez - Candidate for Senator At-Large
