    Let Her Speak: Protest Convoy for Jo Jorgensen

    The Commission of Presidential Debates is refusing to allow any third party to debate without polling at 15%. The catch? Those polls typically exclude third party candidates. Join this first nationwide peaceful protest, safely from the comfort of your vehicle, to speak out against disenfranchisement of third party candidates such as Jo Jorgensen. Locally, the protest will travel convoy-style in a loop around Downtown. Decorate your car with flags, slogans in shoe polish, gold glitter, etc., and join the parade!
    Sat., Aug. 8, 11:30am-1pm. Free.  
    LBJ Library Parking Lot 37 to Downtown
