Tejano Land Grant Movement

Messages Sent So Far
The Tejano Land Grant Movement seeks immediate justice for its heirs and descendants of Spanish Land Grants in Texas.

By signing this petition we assert our belief that the United States government violates the Civil Rights of heirs and descendants of Spanish Land Grants in Texas. Furthermore, the United States government allowed Texas lawmakers to impose laws which are unconstitutional under Federal and International law.
