Texas's "show me your papers" law Senate Bill 4 (SB4) is scheduled to take effect September 1st. If enacted, SB4 will put a target on the backs of communities of color, allowing officers to stop people based on how they look, how they speak or what accent they have. Thousands of Texas families, law enforcement and community leaders have spoken out against this hateful bill. 

Rally with fellow Texans around the state to unite against SB4. Dates and locations are listed below (will be updated as more details become available).
