Please join CBI Sisterhood for the Families Belong Together Rally event at the Texas State Capitol on Saturday, June 30 to protest our government's recent policy of separating families at the border. The Austin rally, hosted by MoveOn.org, will occur simultaneously with other events around the country in effort to send a clear message that the cruel, inhumane practice of separating families at the border must stop. Families Belong Together!

To return north to the Rosedale Station, walk to the Northbound Capitol Bus Station at 13th and Lavaca. See the 803 MetroRapid webpage and this route map for more details.
