Right off the bat - literally, immediately after the Progress Texas team touched down in El Paso on Thursday - we hosted a special live podcast recording to help kick off this year's Texas Democratic Convention at the El Paso Convention Center! We continued our ongoing series with terrific Texas political influencers on the topic of abortion rights before a packed house! Progress Texas Executive Director Kathleen Thompson moderated a stellar panel: TX-15 U.S. Congressional nominee Michelle Vallejo, former State Senator and reproductive rights icon Wendy Davis, and for the first time on our podcasts, reproductive rights advocate Amanda Zurawski. Thanks to all of them, and to all of you who attended live!
