Pandemic or not - we’re still fighting for you
In the midst of this pandemic, we’re working to promote progress, hold our leaders accountable, and keep Texans informed. Here’s an ongoing list of our content.
Over the last few weeks, the number of COVID-19 cases in Texas has grown dramatically.
When the virus first started to impact our state, we began calling on our state lawmakers to implement universal vote-by-mail. Since then, we’ve also worked to hold our leaders accountable and promote progress on a number of other issues including abortion access, paid sick leave, economic opportunity, and more.
Here’s an ongoing list of our content as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic:
