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.
