The Texas Handmaids have also kindly agreed to help organize a pre-celebration march to give a mobile element to the event for those who desire it, and draw the public eye. The event will start out at City Hall at the end of the Impeachment Rally and move down Congress, arriving at the beginning of the TX Roe V Wade Rally. More details here: facebook.com/events/206053683295960/

Anyone interested in help wishing to robe up for or help organize the Handmaids procession can contact the Texas Handmaids through their facebook page or through their website: texashandmaids.weebly.com/

There will also be a table with coloring for the kids (and possibly bubble activities weather permitting). Please exercise your best parental judgement about your child's level of understanding, maturity level, and ability to handle the subject matter of the event, but know that they are welcome and we will have the kids table right by the audience area so you can be close to your kids. We will have activity facilitators for the kid's area to help supervise play.
