Five years ago today, Sandra Bland was found hanged in a Texas jail, after being arrested for a failure to signal. While officials ruled her death a suicide, so many questions remain.

One of our Asian American community members paid for this #BlackLivesMatter billboard in SW Houston to show support and empathy... Since then he's received death threats from his own community. Tomorrow there is a plan to protest the sign. I need your help to counter it.

ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester. https://www.ice.gov/news/releases/sevp-modifies-temporary-exemptions-nonimmigrant-students-taking-on...
Latino & Black residents are 3x as likely to become infected & nearly 2x as likely to die from COVID as their white neighbors. Many have front-line jobs that keep them from working at home; rely on public transit, or live in cramped apartments or multigenerational homes. #txlege
