This is a transcript of the declaration that Lolita Guerrero, from Senator Garcia's office, shared with us in Houston, during our statewide day of action to Stand up for Ethnic Studies, April 26, 2013.

SB1128 and HB1938 are bills that will devalue the importance of Ethnic Studies in higher education in Texas. We know college is the time to broaden our horizons and to take courses that challenge old and outdated pre-conceptions, but SB1128 and HB1938 will discourage college students from taking specialized history courses, such as Mexican American Studies, Chicano Studies, or African American Studies as a core history course.

Texas should not take a step backwards by following the lead of states like Arizona that have attempted to ban ethnic studies programs. Texas and U. S. history must include the history of Latinos and African Americans, people who built this country, and all our various cultures that make up Texas and the United States.

Thankfully, these two bills have not moved very far in the legislative process because of people like Tony Diaz and other advocates that have made it clear that we will not stand by and let our history be forgotten, but we still need to remain vigilant of attempts to attack our culture.

Thank you,

Texas Senator Sylvia Garcia
