Cesar Chavez Blvd. Is Closed And Detoured To The Right—Let’s Get It Back Open And Move Forward

I was driving around Houston a few days ago and I came upon this road repair area.

It seemed unfortunately symbolic of where we are politically —for the moment at least—-in both Texas and in our nation.

In this picture you see that Cesar Chavez Boulevard is closed and has been detoured to the right.

The path forward towards greater freedom and opportunity has been blocked by the scapegoating of the poor, union busting, and attacks on Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

The good news is that every individual has the ability to make the decision to work with others for a better Texas and a better nation. We can reopen the road forward.

You always have the option to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes you value, and even run for public office.

Here are facts about the life of Cesar Chavez. 

Use the example of Mr. Chavez’s life and your own beliefs and talents to convey the clear message that this closure is just temporary, and that the newly repaired road will be smooth and wide enough for all to travel.
