Three years ago, Governor Abbott signed one of the most racist and discriminatory bills in the country- SB4. The Governor made it his priority to target the Latino community and make us afraid in our own home. But we refuse to be afraid and this month also marks the anniversary of Jolt’s most powerful and well known events, #15contraSB4. In the wake of this hateful legislation, fifteen teenage Jolt members donned their quinceañera dresses and sent a powerful message- that young Latinas are the future of Texas and that they refuse to let the Governor disrespect their families.
On the three year anniversary of this event, we invite you to make a donation in support of the powerful young Latinas who are changing the course of Texas history. Your gift will help us build a cohort of leaders with the knowledge and skillset to transform our state into a place that recognizes diversity as a strength.
