Texas Legal Aid & #Justice4GeorgeFloyd

HEY Texas, y’all have turned *OUT* to honor the memory of Mr. George Floyd, and to remind the police of this country that BLACK LIVES MATTER. Houston has said ENOUGH to the police violence that takes our friends, our cousins, our neighbors. I am so proud to be part of this city.
Here is a centralized list of lawyers who have expressed their willingness to represent pro bono individuals charged for causes related to their participation in the #Justice4GregoryFloyd demonstrations this weekend.
Indivisible Houston is proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Black Lives Matter Houston (@BLMHOU) and the other co-sponsors of Friday's demonstration.
