Crystal Mason Thought She Had The Right to Vote. TX Sentenced Her to Five Years in Prison for Trying. The case of a TX mother is a window into how the myth of voter fraud is being weaponized to suppress the vote.

Paid Sick leave for 340,000 San Antonio residents might have disappeared without a fight had we not stepped in to defend it with our partners. We will continue to fight in and out of the courts to stop corporate interests from overturning worker victories.

Nearly one year ago, tens of thousands of San Antonians stood up to ensure that their city adopt a common sense policy that would benefit workers across the city. This inspiring democratic exercise is at risk of being overturned because of a small group of corporate interests.

The result is the same across the board: traumatized children missing their caregivers, and horrified parental figures desperate to be reunited with them. We must , reunite these families, and treat all immigrant families with dignity and respect.

Not only does the government continue to separate some biological parents from their children for crossing the border, but they refuse to recognize other family members raising children and separate them too. These families do not have the same protections under the law.
