Next Meeting: September 17
Speaker: Nancy Thompson —
Mothers Against Greg Abbott

Mothers Against Greg AbbottMothers Against Greg Abbott began as a one-woman protest when Nancy Thompson stood in front of the Texas State Capitol by herself. A week later, Nancy was no longer a lone mother against Abbott, but one of thousands of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, kids, women, men, aunts, uncles, grandmothers, and grandfathers against Greg Abbott — a community of change that became a powerful movement with thousands flooding social media with stories of their children and family members placed in harm's way by Greg Abbott's policy failures. "We recognized that there is power in numbers and that we have an opportunity for change in the 2022 election. So we decided the best next move is to form a State PAC and help drive the change Texas families want for Texas."

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.
