ODESSA - One local group is up in arms about some bills being proposed in Austin.

So much so, they gathered in Odessa on Tuesday to have their voices heard.

Una Voz Unida says several house bills unfairly target minorities.

Dozens of people showed up to demonstrate outside the Ector County Courthouse.

They were waving flags and holding signs, all to show their disagreement.

Organizer Art Leal said Tuesday's event seemed to be a success.
