As Democratic state Senator Wendy Davis begins the final two hours of her epic 13-hr filibuster of Senate Bill 5—the GOP's anti-woman, anti-abortion omnibus bill (see my early morning post for more background)—you can donate to her campaign using the Donate button here: http://www.wendydavisforsenate.com/
Here's the Texas Senate Livestream of Sen. Davis's filibuster: http://www.youtube.com/...
Please Stand With Texas Women and #StandWithWendy until the special session ends at midnight (CT) as Sen. Davis continues her filibuster of SB 5.
This is a million times better than watching that guy walk across the Grand Canyon. #StandWithWendy— Dr. Jill Biden (@JillBidenVeep) June 26, 2013
What you can do today to Stand With Texas Women
Go to the capitol: #SB5 Action Alert: Come Early, Stay Late, Wear Orange: Katherine Haenschen offers excellent advice for those who are able to travel to Austin.
Call your TX legislator's office: If you're a Texan, call your legislator to politely yet firmly register your opposition to SB 5. I've heard that they will feel as though they're being bombarded if they receive just 15 calls. We can do better than that. Be sure to thank our Democratic legislators for their efforts as well.
Change your profile pic: Haenschen also provides a link to the orange Stand With Texas Women pic so that you can show your support of us today. And wear orange, regardless of whether you're going to Austin.
Share on social media: Y'all know what to do. Please use #sb5, #txlege, and #StandWithWendy.
