News from the progressive movement around Texas, delayed by a day due to a lack of rural broadband. It's brought to you by our 2021 Members, who make everything we do possible. Empower our movement by joining TODAY.

★★★

Alejandra Bernal of Our Revolution Collin County, just north of Dallas, has been fighting for Justice for Marvin Scott, who died in Collin County jail due to police officers pepper-spraying him and putting a hood over his head immediately after, causing him to suffocate. He was arrested, and ultimately murdered, for having a joint. Alejandra was quoted in the New York Times saying that “protests could cease if the family’s demands, which include arresting the officers involved, were met.” While the officers involved were fired, Our Revolution Texas will continue fighting for justice. Sign our petition demanding Justice for All NOW.

The criminalization of cannabis is killing people, from Marvin Scott to veterans to countless others. Thankfully, Our Revolution Texas’ very own LaTonya Whittington is leading the fight to #FreeTheWeed in Texas. “I’m a patient who needs cannabis for quality of life.” She continued that the doctors want her to take 21 different medications, many of which cause significant damage to her liver, but with cannabis she can cut down those medications dramatically. “We need our medicine. Big Pharma needs to get out of this.” Click here to sign our petition to legalize cannabis.
