Attached is a resource detailing a new COVID relief fund that was just approved by Harris County. The flyer is available in English, Spanish, Chinese and Vietnamese explaining the application process.

The application window ends on Aug. 11. Please pass along this information if you know someone!

The applicant will need to be read to upload supporting documents for proof of identity, residency, and income.

FYI: the program is for Harris County residents whose livelihoods were impacted by COVID. The money goes straight to the applicant. Each approved household will get $1500, to use on any kind of bill (utility, car payment, housing, Rx, groceries, childcare, etc.). And unlike some funds, the program is open to undocumented families, as long as one person in the household is a US Citizen or a legal resident.

Texas House Democrats preparing to flee the state in move that could block voting restrictions bill, bring Legislature to a halt

“They’re leaving on a jet plane…”
Go Texas Democrats!

A majority of Democrats in the Texas House of Representatives plan to leave the state and fly to Washington, D.C., Monday afternoon in a bid to again deny Republicans the quorum needed to pass new voting restrictions with 27 days left in a special legislative session called largely for that purpose.

    Sharing from Moms Demand action: ARTWORK REQUEST We needd to keep the pressure up on Sen. Lucio, and to thank Sen. Hinojosa. So we’re calling on the KIDS to help us out. The ask: gather as many homemade thank you cards, created by children, as possible by Sunday. We’ll overnight them (I’m working to see about reimbursement) to Becca DeFelice, who will hand deliver them with homemade cookies. Lucio is a big family man, and we need him to remember why he needs to keep doing the right thing. So, here’s what the cards need to say. Dear Senator, Thank you for voting to keep me safe. Child, Age City (Some can say specifically Senator Lucio, but we also want to pass a few along to Hinojosa). We’re hoping to get 50-100 cards. A parent can write the text, but please have a kiddo decorate and sign it wherever possible if anyone has kids who want to participate let me know and I can arrange pickup
    Public Health Committee Hearing Tomorrow On Wednesday, April 7th at 8:00 AM, the Texas House Public Health Committee will hold a hearing for six anti-abortion bills. These appalling bills are extremist legislators’ attempt to push abortion access out of reach: HB 1515 This is an extreme and dangerous bill that would outright ban abortion in the state before many Texans even know they are pregnant. It would create harassing lawsuits against doctors and anyone who helps patients access care by creating a cause of action that would allow anyone to sue a doctor who performs an abortion and anyone who “aids or abets” an abortion. This bill is unconstitutional and has been struck down in every state where it was passed. It will open our state up to expensive and time-consuming legal challenges. HB 1280 This is another extreme bill that would ban abortion with essentially no exceptions, including the case of a lethal fetal diagnosis—a heartbreaking situation for any family. Forcing someone to carry a pregnancy to term compounds economic hardships and increases the odds of the patient and her family living in poverty. HB 2337/SB 394 This bill places extensive restrictions on how and when a provider can provide medication abortion. Medication abortion is extremely safe and effective and gives patients the option to end their pregnancy at home or in another comfortable setting. Mifepristone, the medication used, is subject to FDA restrictions and has a proven safety record. HB 2313/SB 802 This bill violates the privacy of Texans seeking an abortion by forcing them to reveal their medical decision to a third party. It requires a patient to receive counseling from state contractors, often Crisis Pregnancy Centers, before an abortion. HB 3218/SB 1173 This bill unconstitutionally bans abortion based on private decision making, forcing people to carry nonviable pregnancies against their will. HB 3760/SB 1647 This omnibus-style bill adds additional unconstitutional restrictions and hurdles for patients and medical professionals. It would require abortion providers to document that they have received information on giving birth and caring for a pregnancy in the case of a fetal anomaly. It would criminalize providers if they do not comply with the state’s proposed recordkeeping. To submit written public comment from anywhere in Texas, please use the link below. A sample comment should include the following: My name is ###X, and I oppose House Bill ###X. Add 1-2 lines about why you personally oppose this bill. Incorporate one or two of the primary talking points (see above). Share why you care about abortion access. Remind them why you oppose the bill and urge them to reject this legislation. Thank you in advance for doing your part in protecting abortion access in Texas!
