Basta Texas Unity March and Concert
Saturday, Sept 2nd · 11AM - 3PM
We’re excited to announce that Grammy Nominated Voz de Mando and Grammy Winners La Santa Cecilia will be performing at this historic Unity March and Concert Against Hate and White Supremacy on Saturday, September 2 in Austin, Texas. We’re bringing together Texas’ diverse communities of color with a free concert and march to show lawmakers that we are powerful, that we are united, and that we will fight against SB4 and all attacks on our community. The March is three days ahead of the deadline given to the federal government to end the renewal of DACA. If the program is renewed, the Attorney General from 10 states have threatened to sue the Trump administration.
