I spent a three hour volunteer shift at the West Gray Multi Service Center today handing out the 2023 endorsement card for the Houston LGBTQ+ Political Caucus.
Here is who the Caucus endorsed.
Above is the card, my hand and some political signs.
I'm a member of the Caucus. I attend and participate in the monthly meetings and have signed up for two volunteer shifts to hand out the card. The meetings are well-run and the leadership of the group is thoughtful and inclusive.
The Caucus has strong relationships with candidates and elected officials.
My thoughts tend more to the view that candidates and elected officials come and go.
If we get a second Trump term and have Ken Paxton as Texas Attorney General, the Caucus might need resources for legal fees, bail funds, self-defense and getting people out of Texas.
I try to be active in the organization so I can have a voice in debates ahead and so my voice is heard.
What's important to you as we face all the troubles ahead? Be part of the things you value and want to protect. Let's build coalitions of people who show up. Let's look out for each other.
The Houston Democracy Project works daily to make democracy a top issue in 2023 Houston politics and to inspire, organize and strengthen pro-democracy coalitions in Houston and Harris County. The Houston Democracy Project will be ongoing through 2024 if not longer.
