Your Houston City Council Member needs your help to get the Spirit of the Confederacy statue down. Call them today, so they'll have the numbers they need to make this happen.
There are five at-large members to call:
Council Member Mike Knox
Council Member David W. Robinson
Council Member Michael Kubosh
Twitter: @KuboshMichael and @MichaelKubosh3
Council Member Amanda Edwards
Council Member Jack Christie
And you need to call your district council member as well. Here's the link to find the right person. http://www.houstontx.gov/council/whoismycm.html
What else can you do?
1. Get one more person to make a call to city council. Your spouse, best friend, mother, etc.
2. Get your neighbors to call. Be brave enough to have a difficult conversation with them.
3. Tweet the council members; fax them, email them, send them letters.
4. Join us at the sign-making party tonight to help us prepare for Saturday. [Check the Events tab]
5. Join us on Saturday when we show up downtown, making a concrete, physical demonstration of just how many people despise this statue and all it represents. It's time we Destroy the Confederacy once and for all.
