The Issues

What's At Stake

Reproductive Rights, Health, and Justice

We believe all Texans should have the right to make their own reproductive health care decisions, including whether or not to have an abortion, without shame, stigma or interference by politicians.

LGBTQ Equality

We believe in equality for all Texans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.

Voting Rights

We believe the freedom to vote is a fundamental right, and we must resist efforts to suppress and discourage voter participation.

Criminal Justice Reform

We believe in ending mass incarceration, eliminating the school-to-prison pipeline and creating a more humane criminal justice system.

Immigration

We believe all who live in Texas, regardless of immigration status, should have access to a safe, healthy and dignified life. We advocate for the safety, inclusion and freedom of our immigrant community.
