NAACP, 2018: "NAACP “would definitely take action of some nature if the bill passes the Legislature," $10m, 10,000 visitors
American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages: regularly hosts in San Antonio, 8,000 attendees, "SB6 seriously jeopardizes ACTFL's and its members' ability to return to your state for business."
Public Responsiblity in Medicine and Research, 2017: "would negatively impact the attendance at and tenor of our 2017 Advancing Ethical Research Conference...if the bill passes, we will have no choice but to cancel the meeting in San Antonio," $2.1m, 2,500 visitors. "We have already dropped Texas from consideration as a host of our 2020 conference based on this bill's introduction.
NASPA: "would have no choice but to reconsider the location for our annual conference scheduled in Austin, Texas in 2022..." "we would not consider Texas as a site for future meetings..." 6,800 visitors
