    In a desperate move, Cruz just named Carly Fiorina as his running mate. We have a lot of feelings about this, but Carly says it best.

LGBTQ Equality

Marriage equality is the law of land, but the fight for LGBTQ equality in Texas isn’t over. In much of Texas today, it is totally legal to discriminate against gay and transgender people simply based on who they are. The right’s effort to discriminate against LGBTQ Texans — whether it’s under the false banner of “religious freedom” or any other guise — hasn’t let up, and neither will we.

Abortion Access

Over the last four decades, Texas lawmakers have worked to turn back the clock on a woman’s right to access abortion care in our state — injecting their beliefs into our personal decisions. We are part of a movement to that is working to ensure that every Texas woman has the ability to make her own decisions about her health and her family.

Accountability

There’s no shortage of bad behavior to keep in check here in Texas. From committing outright felonies, to misusing taxpayers dollars as their personal piggy banks, elected officials on the right are constantly up to no good. But no politician is above the law, so we’re holding em’ accountable.

Economic Empowerment

The truth is what Texas Republicans have dubbed the “Texas Miracle” hasn’t reached many Texans. Too many working Texans have jobs that pay too little to support themselves or their families. From guaranteeing equal pay for equal work and paid family leave, to raising the minimum wage, we’re working to promote economic opportunity and mobility in our state.

Affordable Health Care

Health care is a right — every Texan deserves access to quality, affordable health coverage. Since the Affordable Care Act became law, more Texans have gained access to health coverage than ever before. But 5 million Texans still don't have insurance, which means we still have a long, long way to go.

Why Courts Matter

Every issue we care about — health care, voting rights, reproductive rights, and so many more — goes through the courts. That’s #WhyCourtsMatter and why we must fill vacancies on Texas’ federal courts.

Marijuana Policy Reform

Marijuana policy reform is happening in Texas, sooner than most people think. If we change our laws, we can improve public safety, boost our economy, and provide much-needed health care options for struggling Texans. It's a matter of justice, and it's something every Texan should take seriously.
