HAUL Issues Strong Rebuke of Texas SB4, Citing Dire Impact on Houston’s Marginalized Communities; Calls for Upholding Rights and Equity
HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, December 20, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Houston Area Urban League is gravely concerned about the passage of SB4 in Texas, as we recognize its detrimental impact, particularly on citizens of color in the Houston Area. This bill poses significant threats to the rights and safety of marginalized communities, perpetuating a climate of fear and distrust of local law enforcement. It exacerbates existing inequalities by potentially enabling discrimination and racial profiling, thereby undermining the well-being and livelihoods of those we serve.
HAUL remains resolute in our dedication to standing against such legislation, advocating tirelessly for policies that foster inclusivity, equity, and justice for all residents in our diverse community.
