Crip Camp should won instead of the octopus documentary. A documentary on civil rights should always beat one on mere squids. Judith Heumann and the other disability rights are more powerful than squids as Judith changed the lives of people with disabilities in our great country.

I am so grateful to have worn this elegant, pearl pantsuit by @markarian_nyc to the #oscars last night. I felt so proud to be representing such a landmark film! @cripcampfilm

Founded in 1978, CTD is the largest and oldest member-driven cross-disability organization in the state. “Cross-disability” refers to all types of disabilities and different functional needs, rather than a particular disability or subset of disabilities. CTD envisions a future where all Texans with all disabilities may work, live, learn, play, and participate fully in the community of their choice. We focus on governmental advocacy, public awareness activities, and professional disability consulting to make Texas a leader in disability-related public policy and culture.

Congratulations to my friend and fellow Longhorn Andy Brown! He is a genuine, great guy who will serve Travis County! Hook'em!

Yesterday, the precinct chairs elected me to be the Democratic nominee for Travis County Judge. I’m grateful for the faith they have placed in me to lead our community. I look forward to representing our party on the ballot in November. Thank you to Commissioner Travillion and Dyana for running strong progressive campaigns that advanced our shared values. Together, we will continue to work to transform the criminal justice system, prioritize quality healthcare for all, enact ethics reform, combat COVID-19, and a strong economic recovery for our community. We have an election to win in November and I look forward to making my case to all Travis County voters.

Checking in on State Revenue - Every Texan

There are already growls...that Texas will have a terrible budget session in 2021...or not! Our friends at Every Texan nail it here. Texas has a massive Rainy Day fund, is receiving and will receive extra federal funds and can close loopholes and open revenue streams. The call to legislators is to meet the needs of its citizens. Be educated and be prepared.

Making sure every Texan has the tools they need to come through this health and economic crisis must be the top priority of state lawmakers as they make budget decisions. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how vulnerable our state’s already underfunded health care, schools and other critical se...
