GRASSROOTS ORG SUPPORTS LOCAL FIREFIGHTER'S PROPOSITION B



HOUSTON- The Board of Houston Justice Coalition voted unanimously last week to support Proposition B, the initiative to pay firefighters a living wage.


“Our members feel Houston’s Firefighters and Ambulance workers deserve a living wage. We stand in solidarity with the union and urge our members and neighbors to do the same at the ballot box with a Yes vote for Proposition B,” said Houston Justice President Durrel Douglas.


Proposition B, if passed, would provide clarity between police and fire pay in the future. The initiative came about after tens of thousands of Houston voters supported placing the item on the November ballot through a signature campaign led by the union.

‘Over the next several weeks leading up to Election Day we’ll hit the streets with the union knocking on doors and talking to voters to make sure Houstonians rally around our city’s first responders and know that we care for them and their families,” continued Douglas.


Houston Justice is a nonprofit grassroots, member-led organization empowering communities to balance the scales of Justice for their families and communities.
