Support Texas Religious Freedom Amendment

The Texas Religious Freedom Amendment (SJR 10 and HJR 125) would provide clear and specific protection in our state constitution for religious freedom. A state religious freedom constitutional amendment provides the best guarantee of lasting protection for citizens' religious liberties from an overreaching legislature, government bureaucracy, or the courts. Please contact your State Senator and State Representative and encourage them to stand for religious liberty by coauthoring SJR 10 and HJR 125.

Urge Your Elected Officials to Publicly Stand for Marriage

In light of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision that allows lower court rulings to overturn the marriage laws in several states, including Oklahoma, it is time for the elected leaders of Texas to publicly and boldly stand for the protection of our state's marriage laws. Ask your Texas elected officials to publicly support Texas' marriage laws and renounce efforts of the Federal Judiciary and Executive Branch to redefine marriage in Texas.
