July Meeting—$ in Politics

Imagine a government run by people, not money-that’s the vision of American Promise, working to end unchecked political spending by corporations, unions, special interest groups, and wealthy individuals, by ratifying the 28th Amendment to the Constitution to restore American democracy.

The North Texas chapter of American Promise works with local teams to ask their city councils for a resolution calling on Congress to send an amendment to the states for ratification. 800 cities and towns have passed such resolutions, but in Texas only Austin has done so.

Join us for our July meeting when we will hear from Ann Drumm about dark money in politics and what you can do in our communities to fight it.

Thursday, July 25, 6:30-8:30 pm
Los Jimadores Tex-Mex Tequila Factory
3314 Harwood Rd, Bedford, Texas 76021

See you there and bring a friend!

Running with Beto Watch Party and #TXLege Session Wrap

The session is wrapping up and because of record turnout and Democratic gains, Texans are seeing better bills and better-behaved lawmakers*. 

For our annual May social (no May meeting), let’s celebrate Sine Die (the end of the 86th Legislative Session) together and watch “Running With Beto,” winner of the 2019 SxSW audience award.

“Running With Beto” follows Beto O’Rourke behind the scenes of his breakaway campaign to unseat Ted Cruz in the United States Senate. With intimate access to the candidate, his family and team, this independent documentary captures Beto’s rise from a virtual unknown to a national political sensation.

Retire Texas’ Worst Lawmaker

Pundits and donors ignored HD 92 for years. You may not know the district, but you know Jonathan Stickland—disliked on both sides for his antics and extremism.

He was just the lone “no” vote on HB 3—a sweeping education reform bill. Each session, he authors permitless carry—guns everywhere, for anyone, anytime.

Last session, he led the “Mother’s Day Massacre,” killing 121 bills including one to protect kids from online sexual predators.

HD 92 has NO voice for reason or progress. With our help, the 2018 Dem nominee closed a 16-point lead to less than three.

Stickland is embarrassing. He’s appalling. He’s funded by West Texas dark money and he beats every R challenger because the hard right turns out.

Heard enough? We’re fundraising NOW for 2020.

Pitch in TODAY to retire Texas’ worst lawmaker.
