Latinas are banding together to fight against Texas’ anti-immigration law Senate Bill 4 (SB4) with a quinceañera-themed act of resistance.

"Quinceañera at the Capitol" will take place on July 19 in Texas.

It will be hosted by Jolt — a multi-issue organization catering to matters that directly impact Latinxs. 

The event's call to action reads, "This is the spirit of the Quinceañera at the Capitol event: to celebrate the resistance to SB4 by highlighting our commitment to our communities and culture. After all, SB4 isn’t just about politics: it will sow fear and distrust into our communities and break apart our families. To resist this harmful and hateful law, we will draw on the incredible power within the very communities that SB4 will affect."

The inspiration for Jolt's powerful political act came from one of the organization's volunteers.

In an interview with Remezcla, Jolt communications director Tania Mejia said, "She had been going to the Capitol for rallies and events against SB4 and saw young women taking quinceañera photos at the Capitol. We thought that this event would be a great way to show people that this is our home, celebrate our culture, and send the message that young Latinas are standing up to the ongoing attacks on our community by our elected officials who work at the Capitol."

Texas is home to nearly 11 million Latinxs — and these young women are going to showcase how detrimental SB4 is to the Latinx community.

Latinxs make up roughly 40% of the Texas population (19% of all US residents), and they are the same people who are at risk because of this racially loaded piece of legislation.

At the rally, 15 young, fearless Latinas will vocalize 15 reasons why they are denouncing the "show me your papers" law.

On May 7, Texas governor Greg Abbott signed the SB4 law, which will go into effect on September 1, 2017. 

The law will ban sanctuary cities and allows local law enforcement officers to ask people under "lawful detention" — something as minor as a traffic stop — about their immigration status. 

Noncompliance with the bill's requirements could result in a fine range of $1,000 to $25,000 — and that's just the minimal penalty for elected or appointed officials who limit (or refuse) cooperation with federal immigration agents. They can also be removed from office if they are in violation of the bill, according to The Atlantic.

True to traditional quinces, there will also be a choreographed dance to politically-charged songs.

According to Remezcla, they will be dancing to K’naan, Residente, Riz MC, and Snow Tha Product’s "Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)" from Lin-Manuel Miranda's "Hamilton Mixtape" and "Somos Más Americanos” by Los Tigres del Norte. 

"We’re going to combat hate and racism by celebrating Latino culture."

Meija noted, "Quinceañeras aren’t just about parties – they are coming-of-age celebrations that strengthen the bonds of family. They are also about uniting community in celebration, which is what we need to do to stop hateful and racist policies that hurt Latinos."
