PODGress Texas: The issues defining the progressive movement in Texas

Campaigns come and go, but it’s the issues that drive us – and that’s why we continue working as the voice for a new majority.

The 2018 election was a great celebration for the progressive movement in Texas – twelve state house seats, two state senate seats, two congressional seats, and a whole slew of amazing down-ballot races. And looking forward, the issues we fight for remain important ones in the months ahead: in Congress, in the statehouse, and at the local level.

At Progress Texas, that means talking about the issues that matter most to everyday people - issues like affordable health care, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA+ rights, voting rights, the environment, and so many more. This year we produced a podcast series offering in-depth conversations on some of the issues you care about most. And as the issues begin to unfold at the legislative level, take a few moments and tune in to see where the conversations began.
