As we celebrate the emancipation of African Americans on this #Juneteenth, may we also recognize that there is much to do as we continue working toward justice and equality for all people.
SCOTUS made the correct decision. DACA recipients are part of the social & economic fabric of our country. They’re enrolled in our schools, serve in the military, teach children, care for patients in hospitals & lead businesses. They belong here & they make communities better.
The Legislature has shown a bipartisan willingness to invest in behavioral health. But those investments came in healthy economic times. Now, we're in a recession. But a budget is a statement of priorities & mental health should be at the top of the list. houstonchronicle.com/opinion/outloo…
I'm part of the bipartisan majority applauding this decision, and among the 70% of Texans who support comprehensive nondiscrimination. Sadly, we're likely to see more attacks on LGBTQ Texans. Let's put an end to it. #txlege dallasnews.com/news/national/…
