Speak Up for Democracy in Ft Worth

January 21 is the Anniversary of “Citizens United” — which robbed America of our democracy!

The “Citizens United” case,the McCutcheon case, and the gutting of the Voters Rights Act, all done by the Five Injustices of the Supreme Court, have transferred our voting rights to moneyed corporations. But Americans are just beginning to fight back, and we’ll be doing our part at the Ft Worth Chapter of TARA’s meeting January 21 at 1 PM. We meet at FURR’S BUFFET, 3233 ALTA MERE DRIVE, FT WORTH, TX 76116 and you are encouraged to join us.

The honorable Lon Burnam will be joined by NAACP President Juanita Wallace.

Those who have recently seen the movie “Selma,” and it’s recommended to everyone, know how hard it has been to win voting rights in America. Today, the Injustices are doing all they can to turn the calendar backward and take us to the early days when only white male property owners were allowed to vote in the United States. Please join us on January 21, the day after our state convention in Austin.

-Gene Lantz, President
