The Houston Democracy Project was at the Houston Tejano Democrats municipal candidate endorsement meeting this evening.
They had a good crowd and it was a lively session. There were many strong rank & file democracy advocates ready to insist that candidates and elected officials fight for us as we confront rising authoritarianism locally and across the nation.
The Houston Democracy Project is out every day (And on the phone or the Zoom call from home!), making the case for democracy as a top issue in '23 Houston city politics. I had conversations tonight & advocated for a few City of Houston candidates who have made protection of democracy an issue in their campaigns.
Please support the Project as we work together to inspire, organize and strengthen pro-democracy coalitions in Houston and Harris County.
There is a great deal lot of trouble ahead. We must face the reality of our situation & find our way to each other while there is still time.
I'm Neil Aquino
