Friday, May 27, is the first full day of the annual NRA convention. This year it's being held in Houston, just a few hours away from the site of yet another horrific mass shooting, this time at Robb Elementary school in Uvalde, TX.

Elected Texas officials, including Gov. Greg Abbott and Sen. Ted Cruz, are scheduled to speak at their Institute for Legislative Action Forum, starting at 2pm. We'll be outside to greet the attendees starting at 1pm, when doors open.

We know there are other protest actions scheduled for Friday, and you may be planning on attending more than one - we encourage you to use your voices in many ways on Friday! Each protest will have a unique voice, and together we seek the same change. Clergy - we invite you to wear clergy attire.

GOALS & DEMANDS:

1. Call out elected officials for their complicity in the deaths of innocent people.

2. Lament the lives lost in Uvalde.

3. Demand of officials and call to action for public: pass legislation for common sense gun laws, including universal background checks and bringing back the assault weapons ban, which was proven effective.
