MOVE Texas

In Texas, more than 40% of the state is under the age of 30, and 63% are people of color. As the state is getting younger and more diverse we need more of our younger generation to show up & flex their electoral power.

FOR A SPECIAL GIFT, SHARE YOUR "I VOTED" PIC IN THE COMMENTS!! (for those under 30yrs old please)

In Texas, more than 40% of us are under the age of 30, and 63% are people of color. Our state is getting younger and more diverse every day and in 2018, those young folks showed up to flex their electoral power.

Youth turnout tripled in Texas between 2014 and 2018, a surge aided by the critical work MOVE Texas does to Mobilize, Organize, Vote, and Empower.
