Democrats are only nine seats away from taking the Texas House!
That means we’d control the speakership, post-census redistricting fair maps, and better outcomes for all Texans!
In case you missed it, Democrats stopped a 16% tax hike, made healthcare more affordable by eliminating surprise medical billing, protected Texans with student loans from job loss, defeated attacks on voting rights, and reformed some marijuana laws.
BUT, because of their numbers, Republicans could stand in the way of Medicaid expansion, gun violence prevention, and fully funding our neighborhood schools.
At our September meeting, hear from our friend Rep. Ramon Romero, Jr. (HD 90, Fort Worth) about his proudest accomplishments of the session, and what he thinks is possible in the next session.

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.

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.
