Filibuster Anniversary: Relive One Year Ago, And Watch The Celebration Live From Austin

by: Burnt Orange Report

Wed Jun 25, 2014 at 05:30 PM CDT

Today marks the one year anniversary of a special date in Texas history: the day that Senator Wendy Davis stood for 13 hours to block a terrible piece of legislation that will hurt Texas women and families.

Tonight, Senators Davis and Leticia Van De Putte, Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards, and many more people who were instrumental in that historic day will celebrate at the Palmer Events Center in Austin. For details, click here. We'll bring you the livestream of the event below the jump. It starts at 6:45 p.m. CST.

While you wait, check out this phenomenal video the Davis campaign put together covering the filibuster, the media coverage, and how this event has changed Texas.

Watch the livestream of tonight's event below the jump. It starts at 6:45 p.m. CST.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The livestream is scheduled to begin at 6:45 p.m.
