May Meeting with ACLU & Mike Collier

February2017Meeting.001

Thankfully, the Texas Legislature’s 85th session is days from ending.

This session, Republicans targeted neighborhood school children, immigrants, LGBT Texans, law enforcement officers, and more.

We’ll hear from the ACLU’s Joe Swanson about their priorities this session and we’ll hear from Mike Collier running to take out Lt. Governor Dan Patrick and the legislative session that could be if Democrats put our energy and enthusiasm to work RIGHT NOW.

See you at the meeting and bring a friend!

Calling for Sean Hayward

We will be helping Sean Hayward call Democrats across Bedford, Euless and North Arlington this Wednesday to ask them to support Sean in his election for Tarrant County College Trustee, District 3.

The best way to fight back against the current right wing lunacy is to help progressive candidates get elected at all levels of government.

All of the voters we will be calling are identified Democrats who will be happy to hear that there is a Democrat on the ballot. Scripts and training will be provided.

So come on over, grab a margarita, and start dialing those numbers!

Texas Legislature Postcard Writing Party (March 2017 Meeting)

March2017meeting.001

A lot has happened since our February meeting: Texas Democrats, civil rights organizations and voting rights advocates had a win in federal court over congressional redistricting maps, the Texas Senate advanced the transgender-targeting “bathroom bill”, mixed-status families and immigrant communities and allies are fighting back against SB4, and much more.

Do your Texas representative and senator know where you stand on public education funding, the environment, equality in the workplace, immigration… Let them hear from you at our March postcard party.

We’ll provide the pens, cards, stamps, and our board officers will share their own samples.

Start exercising those fingers now.

See you at the meeting and bring a friend!
