Urge the Texas State Senate Affairs Committee to VOTE NO on SB 147

Sign the petition calling out this unconditional Texas bill banning Iranians from owning property in Texas.

Step 1: Pick a time before 6pm ET to call. 

Step 2: Call each of the capitol office Numbers for Texas State Senators on the Affairs Committee listed below(office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CST)

Step 3: If you’re calling from the state of Texas, look up the phone numbers of each of your Texas State Representatives here and call them

Step 4: When you connect with the office, whether it’s with a person or the voicemail, make sure to say your name and if you live in Texas, state that you are a constituent.

Here is a sample script you can use, but you are encouraged to share your personal reasons for why you think this bill should not be signed into law: 

“I am shocked and outraged by Texas Senate bill 147, which includes a prohibition on the ownership of property on the basis of national origin. This is plainly unconstitutional and an ugly case of nativism and racism that should be far beneath the values of the Lone Star state.

Will Senator ____________ pledge to vote NO on this discriminatory bill when it is brought up by the committee tomorrow?
