AUSTIN ADVISORY: Congressman Doggett, Speaker Pelosi, & Texas Voting Rights Advocates Speak on Electoral Reforms Package #ForThePeople

Austin, TX — On Tuesday in Austin, Congressman Lloyd Doggett will host a press conference with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and leading Texas voting rights advocates Mimi Marziani, President of Texas Civil Rights Project, and Julieta Garibay, Texas Director and Co-Founder of United We Dream. Julieta is also the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit accusing Texas state officials of illegally targeting her and others because they are foreign-born.

The speakers will address the importance to Texans of approving the electoral reforms in H.R.1, the For the People Act, which will be considered in the House this week. This legislation is designed to make it easier, not harder, to vote; reduce partisan redistricting; and end the dominance of big money in our politics.

When:        9:30 a.m. Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5
