From the office of State Senator Sylvia Garcia:
Join me tomorrow morning or at any of these upcoming events throughout the week to make sure your voice is heard about redistricting! On the same day that the regular session ended, Governor Perry called a Special Session on Redistricting with specific instructions to adopt the interim court-drawn maps for the State House of Representatives, State Senate, and U.S. Congressional Districts.

There will be a couple more opportunities in the form of legislative hearings to make your voice heard on redistricting, as TXRedistricting tells us:
Here are the details for the House redistricting committee hearing in Houston on Wednesday of next week.
Wednesday, June 12 @ 2 p.m. – University of Houston – Downtown, Michael J. Cemo Hall, Room 100 D, 4800 Calhoun Rd., Houston, TX 77004
The Senate redistricting committee also will hold a hearing in Houston onSaturday:
Saturday, June 8 @ 11 a.m. – University of Houston – Downtown, Michael J. Cemo Hall, 4800 Calhoun Road, Houston, Texas 77004
But I think it’s at the University of Houston main campus on Calhoun, and not the Downtown campus, which is a whole different university. Anyway, FYI.
