Redistricting Hearings Underway

Redistricting hearings have begun in both the Texas House and Senate and will continue through this Saturday, September 18 (click here for full schedule). These hearings are a very important tool for citizens to ensure that their areas and interests are considered when redrawing the districts for Congress, state legislature, and State Board of Education. 

Both chambers are allowing virtual testimony. Our partners at All on the Line Texas have tools ready to help you sign up to testify and prepare. Check out their Action Hub for more details. Registration for each hearing closes up to 48 hours prior to the start time of the hearing so please register ASAP.

July 2021 Meeting: Texas Redistricting

July 2021 meeting agenda

All on the Line is fighting hyper partisan gerrymandering in Texas on three fronts—in the courts, in the Texas Legislature, and through civic engagement. We are the third part, the people power! 

This month, Baffour Tontoh will tell us how we can help map our community, and use our voices to testify for fair districts. Gerrymandering is silencing communities. If our votes didn’t matter, Republicans wouldn’t try so hard to suppress them.

Candidates running for office are encouraged to attend and introduce themselves and their priorities.

It’s been a very long time. We can’t wait to see your lovely faces! (Yay, vaccines and Democratic administrations!)

Mike Collier for Lt. Governor (exploratory committee)

After outperforming the top of the Democratic ticket in 2/3 of Texas’ counties, Mike Collier continues to serve as a financial watchdog on the Texas Legislature. He’s considering running again to be our next Lt. Governor, and he wants your support.

Talk to Mike directly this month.

It’s time to give Dan Patrick the boot!
