The Houston Democracy Project will be a main topic of discussion at the Baytown Area Democrats meeting on Thursday, August 8.
You see the details in the picture.
Thanks to you, the Houston Democracy Project is making a difference.
In the two months since the Project was launched, the Houston Democracy Project has been written up by a leading Texas political substack, endorsed by a popular former member of Houston City Council, been the subject of a widely-viewed Facebook Live interview series, been featured on the Egberto Willies Politics Done Right broadcast on Houston station KPFT & is looked to for accurate reports of the weekly pre-trial hearings for the Harris County Republican election-denial lawsuits.
I've maintained an aggressive schedule of one-on-one conversations with 2023 Houston municipal candidates, influencers & rank and file Democrats and Houstonians concerned about the future of democracy. The Project has a daily blog, (You're reading it right now!) with a consistently increasing traffic.
Together we can change the culture of Houston municipal elections. There must be more to our local politics than low voter turnout and special-interest funding.
The Houston Democracy Project has already made progress in changing this depressing and ineffective culture.
With the loss of our elected school board in what just 60 years ago was a Jim Crow city and the ongoing Harris County Republican efforts to undo 2022 Democratic wins at the ballot box, we understand that the threats to democracy are right here at home. This is why it is essential that candidates for Houston municipal office in 2023 address the protection and expansion of democracy as a top campaign issue.
Please share word of the Project and please support the work with a donation.
Your contribution is a vote of confidence that we can impact Houston municipal politics. It’s a vote of confidence that rank & file Democrats and people who care about democracy can have meaningful influence in the politics of one of the largest cities in the United States.
