CONGRESSWOMAN SHEILA JACKSON LEE AND CONGRESSMAN AL GREEN HOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE TO CALL FOR ACTION TO PROMOTE ELECTION FAIRNESS AND JUSTICE

We will be joined by other elected officials and community leaders from across the city. This is a crisis when voters believe they cannot vote says Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Congressman Al Green will hold an important Press Conference to discuss the Texas Voter ID Law and the importance of all citizens of Texas to know their rights when it comes to voting in the state primaries and upcoming runoff elections.

In many of the communities, including minority communities, we have noticed that many people are uninformed as to whether they need a state issued voter ID or the fact that they can use their voter registration card. E have to have answers on why the voters are not informed.

Just six months from a historic election, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Judiciary Committee, has sent letters to the Justice Department and the State of Texas demanding a response.

WHEN: Thursday May 24, 2012 @ 12:30pm

WHO: Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Congressman Al Green, other elected officials and Community Leaders.

WHERE: Moody Park Community Center – 3725 Fulton – Houston, Texas 77009

RSVP: mike.mcquerry@mail.house.gov
