Congratulations to a brave young Democrat, Mike Floyd for the electoral victory! We are the party that believes in big ideas and quality education no matter your zip code. Keep fighting to represent the bright young minds in Pearland's School!

Congratulations to Mike Floyd for his victory in the Pearland ISD Board of Trustees election. Mike was endorsed by the Brazoria County Democratic Party in his race, and we are proud to support Mike in his new office as the youngest elected trustee in Pearland ISD history. Congrats, Mike!

Healthcare is a right 🏩. Not a privilege. You cannot live with dignity without access to health care and in the most economically and technologically advanced civilization mankind has witnessed it is a sin to allow our sick to continue to suffer for the sole purpose that they don't have enough money in their bank accounts. The responsibility lies with the republican controlled federal government to show compassion and pragmatism in approaching universal healthcare.

Sheriff cuts ties with ICE program over immigration detentions

Ed Gonzalez was one of our first guest speakers on campus. We campaigned hard for him and he is fulfilling the promises he made to wisely use tax payer money and to protect families from being torn apart. This is what politics is all about!

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has ended a controversial partnership with federal immigration authorities that trained a team of county deputies to determine the immigration status of jailed suspects and hold those selected for deportation.

Let us keep those seeking refuge and safety in our hearts, minds, and prayers πŸ™πŸ½

This is for everybody that doesn't want refugees in America.

Today my heart is heavy, after members of the College Dems chalked messages of solidarity such as "We Love Our Muslim Brothers and Sisters" and "We Are All Immigrants", individuals on campus who disagreed erased those artful reminders of love.

To the people who erased the chalk messages, this isn't about politics, this is about people. Loving Muslims and immigrants doesn't have to be a Left or Right issue, it should just be a matter of the heart.

To our amazing members who have become so engaged in politics over the past year, keep it up. Speak out. Be brave. Love fiercely. And always remember there will always be people who will try and silence you but for the sake of those who have no voice, we must always speak for them.

Matthew 2:13-15 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. β€œGet up,” he said, β€œtake the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”

People fleeing violence from the Middle East need a place for shelter. This religious ban is unconstitutional and inhumane.

A message from our Deputy Chief of Staff, Tracie:

I hope to see everyone at the Houston Women's March tomorrow! We should meet at HBU around 9:45am. We need to be at the Water Works building near Buffalo Bayou by 10:45, and the march will begin at 11am, which is followed by a rally near City Hall around 12pm. Everyone is encouraged by the organizers to wear a black tshirt (if you have one), bring a water bottle, bring a sign, and bring your spirit of solidarity! Stronger together πŸ’ͺ🏼

Civil Disobedience. Love. Valiance.

These powerful features made Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the civil rights icon he is today. Preaching from Scripture and stirring our moral conscience Dr King won equal rights for black people who were deprived of dignity through slavery and then Jim Crow. People of all religions and ethnicities however can derive from Dr King's three philosophies as we all share a common pain. It is the constant struggle of the oppressors and the oppressed, the exploiters and the exploited.
I wish Dr King were with us today, but it is our generation's responsibility to continue the ever present battle for Civil Rights and Liberties.

It is a new year but our mission will remain the same in 2017. To continue and care for the least of these. Those who are poor, those who are suffering, the incarcerated en masse, the refugee looking for a place to call home. We have accomplished so much in just 6 months! I can't wait to see what the new year has in store ☝🏽

As we give gifts and share each other's company this holiday season let us not forget the many displaced people around the world with no roof over their heads and no gifts to receive from their separated loved ones.

Let us also keep in mind our men and women who serve proudly in our military. I think of my cousin, who cannot spend Christmas with us as the Navy calls for his responsibilities. Be blessed everyone and stay safe! πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’™

Goodmorning, as Americans all over the country go to their Temples, Churches, Mosques, or even outings with friends, remember that despite the differences in politics and religion we share a short time on this earth with our fellow humans. Be good to someone.

We must force ourselves to reach across to people of other ideologies, religions, and backgrounds. A simple conversation or act of sympathy as this man from Dallas is showing is the crucial step forward in uniting a country so divided by this election.
