TDWJC Chapter Meetings


Monthly on the 3rd Saturday
3 p.m.

Antonio's Mexican Restaurant
344 SW Wilshire Blvd.
Burleson, Texas 76028

Next Meeting: July 17, 2021

Welcome back! TDWJC will meet IN PERSON on July 17 at Antonio's.

Our guest speaker will tell us about Meals On Wheels North Central Texas, which serves the counties of Johnson, Ellis, and Navarro. MOWNCT's Impact: "We mobilize across 2,772 square miles to ensure our seniors are well-fed, safe, and reminded of their value to their community. With almost half of our clients living alone, we are a formidable advocate for a vulnerable population facing food insecurity, unattended injury, and loneliness."

As time allows, we'll also work on a Clothes Hanger Campaign to protest SB 8 (the heartbeat bill). The goal is to inundate our state lawmakers (Burns, Birdwell, Abbott, Dan Patrick) with wire coat-hangers to remind them that their vote and support of the "heartbeat" bill has set women's rights back to the days of back-alley abortions.

The bill is scheduled to go into effect on September 1. We are joining with Indivisible TX Lege to let our Legislators know that we will remember their support of this atrocious bill that strips Texas women of our rights, our lives, and our futures. With hang-tags attached to wire coat-hangers, we will tell them how disappointed we are with their support of this extreme anti-choice bill, and we will state emphatically that we'll remember their misogyny when we vote in November 2022.

Wire coat-hangers and hang-tags will be provided at our next meeting. Please bring any extra wire hangers that you want to donate to the effort.

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

 

Chris Tackett digs deeply into the corrosive effects of Dark Money in Texas Politics. His work is revealing how a few wealthy individuals are buying politicians and political races, gathering influence and power, and spending millions to advance their own self-serving agendas.

Learn about Chris and "The Project" at his site, Charting Texas Politics.

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. See who they really represent.
