100 years later, we're still marching. In 1919 Texas ratified the 19th Amendment, which became part of the U.S. Bill of Rights in 1920. While white women of means gained the vote, decades would pass before women of all racial and economic backgrounds were guaranteed this right. Join us in recognizing the ongoing struggle for voting rights by celebrating its first major victory in Texas. With your support we can help elect more Democratic Women in 2020—helping to uphold the amendment's promise from a century ago.

The River and the Wall

In The River and the Wall, directed by Texas native filmmaker Ben Masters, Ben and his crew navigate 1,200 miles of the border between the US and Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. While partly an adventure tale, Ben's real purpose in The River and the Wall is to explore the wildlife across this complex and diverse terrain, and understand how it would be affected by Trump's proposed wall. The film provides a different layer to the debate raging from Washington, D.C., to McAllen and El Paso and beyond as Masters paddles, pedals, and rides his way through this issue.

Charting Texas Politics | Chris Tackett

The issue of Dark Money buying politicians affects us all, no matter where we fall on the political spectrum. All are invited and urged to look at the data Chris has compiled and learn about this threat to democracy. Know where your Texas State Senator and Representative get their money.
