Texas Rally for Jobs

by Jordan Forbes / /

Attention Texans!

America still has 15 million people out of work and the Obama Administration and Congress are debating legislation that will cost us even more jobs! That’s why we’re inviting you to a Rally for Jobs tomorrow, September 1 to protest efforts to hike taxes on oil and natural gas and to extend the Administration’s crippling moratorium on offshore energy exploration.

WE NEED YOUR HELP. Nothing beats the power of grassroots activism and it is up to you to speak up and let your voice be heard. Attendance is absolutely free – come on out and learn what you can do to stop these harmful proposals. Join activists from your community and NTU members at the Rally for Jobs to send a message back to Washington: NO to higher taxes that will increase unemployment and shove our economy into the ditch!

Rallies will occur in Houston, Port Arthur and Corpus Christi, so choose the city nearest you. Doors open at 10:30am at each of the following locations:

Houston: George R. Brown Convention Center (1001 Avenida de las Americas, Houston, TX 77010)

Port Arthur: Port Arthur Civic Center (3401 Cultural Center Drive, Port Arthur, TX  77642)

Corpus Christi: American Bank Center Convention Center - Henry Garrett Ballroom (1901 North Shoreline Boulevard, Corpus Christi, TX 78401)

Only efforts made by taxpayers like you will help turn the tide against their harmful plan. We need your help to fight these tax hikes on the oil and natural gas that fuels our economy! Our economic future depends on it.

We hope to see you tomorrow at Texas Rally for Jobs!
