Texas Democrats are fighting for Texas women, and we need your help.
In all my years of public service, I’ve never seen anything like what happened in the Senate Tuesday night. Thousands of Texans came to the Capitol to support Senator Wendy Davis and her courageous filibuster against a bill that would have jeopardized women, their rights and their health.
Those Texans saw injustice – rules violated, voices ignored – and they rightly voiced their frustration. They stood up for Texas women and, as a result, they stopped the bill.
But our fight isn’t nearly over. The Governor has called another special session, making it even harder to stop this back-room effort to wipe out women’s constitutional rights.
Now more than ever, we need you to Stand With Texas Women. Do that by doing these two things:
The special session could last for 30 days. We’ll need you every step of the way.
Please join this effort. And don’t forget; it’s YOUR Texas Capitol. I hope to see you there on Monday at noon.
