HERO Grassroots Training Kickoff

On Saturday morning a sizable number of enthusiastic, civic minded Houstonians gathered at the Montrose Center for a HERO Grassroots Day Of Action event to defend our city's equal rights ordinance.  

It's a high stakes battle against the Forces of Intolerance that we must win on November 3 that we in H-town are aware that Texas, the nation and the world is watching.  

And as we've been warned by the chair of the Houston Sports Association, the NCAA and NFL are watching this human rights fight play out as well.

What transpired there starting at 10 AM was training to prepare for canvassing that happened later that afternoon, and discussing why our diverse city needs the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance

The volunteers, knowing this November 3 election is a pivotal point in our city's future, were laser beam focused on the training coordinated by the Houston Unites coalition group in conjunction with their HOUEquality coalition partners.

I along with Houston Unites and HOUEquality deeply appreciate all the folks who gave up their Saturday afternoon to take the time to be human rights superheroes.

If you missed last Saturday's event, there will be more upcoming HERO defense events that you can take part in with a canvass on August 22 and an upcoming phone bank on August 29.
