We knew this would be coming shortly. Voter suppression to try to win doesn't make you an actual winner and the courts, we're sure, understand that.

Ok , everyone! Now that we're two weeks away, our focus is shifting to increasing turnout in areas that need our help the most. The first of these assignments is texting low propensity democrats in House District 132, for Representative Gina Calanni. Her seat is one we need to fight to keep. The seat was won by only 113 votes in 2018.

Join us! It’s easy!

‘We Need to Take Away Children,’ No Matter How Young, Justice Dept. Officials Said

"But the attorney general at the time, Jeff Sessions, made it clear what Mr. Trump wanted on a conference call later that afternoon.”

Said Sessions: “We need to take away children.”

“Rod Rosenstein, then the deputy attorney general, went even further in a second call about a week later, telling the five prosecutors that it did not matter how young the children were.”

Top department officials were “a driving force” behind President Trump’s child separation policy, a draft investigation report said.

The truth is that the House bill is actual COVID relief and the Senate bill has always been a ruse. Compromising with the Far Right means sacrificing working families to line the pockets of corporate robber barons.

Let's sacrifice the Far Right from government instead.

All you need to do is sign up and join the Zoom link provided for your shift time! The conversations are very straight forward, as we will be talking to Democrats helping them make a plan to vote. We will also have 1-1 assistance during the shifts if you need help sorting out the technology.

    Hey Y'all, my name is Maggie and I'm one of the Field Organizers on Lizzie Fletcher's re-election campaign! As we all know early voting has started (with great turnout!) but we need help these next 19 days to ensure we speak to as many Democratic supporters to remind them to get out and vote. Our campaign is starting Get Out the Vote on October 24th! We will have phone bank shifts running every day from 9-9 on our virtual field office and would love if you could join us. Lizzie has been a fighter during her first term in Congress as the first woman ever to represent our district and the first Democrat in decades. The GOP is spending lots of money and effort to try and win back this seat - we have to show them Lizzie and Democrats are here to stay. I don't have to tell y'all how important this election is for the future of our country and Houston - we all know. Let's make these last 19 days count! I'm including the link to sign up here: https://www.mobilize.us/fletcherforcongress/event/348927/ Fell free to DM me any questions / comments! I look forward to seeing y'all at our virtual field office and fighting alongside you for a better future for Houston.
