When Texas Flips
Turning the Lone Star State blue: A grassroots effort for a progressive Texas.
In conjunction with the Lone Star Left Playbook, we’ve teamed up with the GAP (Grassroots Action Project) Network and NNWx to bring you When Texas Flips.
When Texas Flips is a movement of Texans working to turn Texas progressive, the movement believes that Texas is ready for change and that we can flip the state by registering voters, getting out the vote, and supporting progressive candidates.
We can make Texas a more equitable state for all by working together.
I want to invite you to our first meeting tonight, where I’ll be one of the presenters. We will discuss how Swing TX Left and Daniel Cohen of Indivisible Houston hope to support the GAP Network and the Lonestar Left Playbook efforts. You’ll also hear from Alexander Montalvo (of the GAP Network) and Jenni King-Witzel of NNWx.
GAP supports local electoral organizing efforts in key House Districts across Texas to ensure progressive candidates are elected and communities have the necessary infrastructure to support campaigns in the future. The GAP model provides a pathway for resources and technical support to flow directly into districts, supporting the existing local organizations and building capacity where needed most.
Although tonight’s discussion will primarily focus on Harris County and Houston House districts, When Texas Flips is a statewide effort, and we’ll have more meetings about the other crucial areas of Texas and how we will bring district action councils together for those counties, too.
District Action Councils are coalitions of grassroots organizations, local Democratic clubs, labor unions, and PACs (Political Action Committees) working together and sharing a common, web-based calendar of events designed to engage voters to flip seats.
When Texas Flips, we’ll throw a great big party. In the meantime, let’s get together and work on making that happen.
