Texas once produced great progressives such as President Lyndon B. Johnson, Commissioner Jim Hightower, and even sparked the national progressive movement with the creation of the National Farmers Alliance. Progressivism is a part of who we are as Texans.
Our Revolution Texas fights for all folks to have the dignity of good healthcare, a good education, a good-paying job, and are free from oppression.
We are a grassroots, people-powered organization that will turn Texas a bright, progressive blue. We are the Texas Progressives. We fight to reclaim our state.

The 2021 February Texas mass power failure and tragedy happened under your watch. As the leading voice in the Texas government, you failed us.
Instead of acting like a leader, you acted as a political hack. You blamed wind energy even though it was your fossil fuel cronies that failed to winterize their equipment. Our wind and solar energy are what kept Texas afloat during this hardship, but you lied and threw shade on the Green New Deal.
You blamed this disaster on clean energy, but it is you who failed to winterize our infrastructure, pushed for profits before people in our energy market, and shifted the blame towards everyone but yourself.
We had a decade to act and your GOP cronies did nothing. You created this mess.
Gov. Abbott needs to resign or be fired at the ballot box in 2022.
Billionaires and mega-corporations are the robber barons of our era. They steal our wages, destroy our climate, and corrupt our government.
The 3 richest billionaires hold more wealth than 150,000,000 of our brothers and sisters. Even during the Pandemic, the rich increased their unimaginable wealth by nearly $1 trillion.
Meanwhile, lines at food banks have never been so long as millions more Americans fall into poverty. 70% of Americans support creating Medicare for All, 80% of registered voters support a Green New Deal, 71% of Americans want to end extreme partisan Gerrymandering, 76% of registered voters want us to Tax the Rich, & over two-thirds of Americans support breaking up monopolies.
And yet, our government is dominated by bankers and billionaires, leaving Main Street to fend for itself. Corporations grow stronger by the day, while our roads and schools crumble. Safety nets for the rich, crippling debt for the rest.
The so-called Reagan Revolution handed American over to the Rich. Our Revolution will hand America back over to the people.
Our Revolution was founded in the wake of Bernie Sander's 2016 campaign with the help of former Texas Ag Commissioner Jim Hightower. We are the only truly statewide progressive organization in Texas. We fight to turn Texas progressive.
To win, we must do four things: 1. Hold Biden Accountable, 2. Elect Progressive Champions, 3. Fight for Progressive Policies, & 4. Build a Progressive Party.
With your help, we know we can make healthcare a human right. We must shape our destiny into one where everyone has healthcare, everyone has a good education & a good job, everyone is free from fear of police brutality, and everyone can freely live the life they choose.
Help us shape our collective destiny by joining Our Revolution Texas today.
Did you know that grassroots donors entirely fund us, so we're not beholden to the corporate class? Your membership will make the difference as we fight for a progressive Texas.
We are on the verge of passing massive reforms, including expanding and strengthening Medicare, ending fossil fuel subsidies, making community colleges tuition-free, protecting workers, and so much more. Click here to learn more / see talking points.
Tell your members of Congress to:
Expand Medicare: Strengthen Medicare to include hearing, dental, and vision benefits. Expand Medicare by lowering the eligibility age from 65 to as low as possible. Institute an out-of-pocket cap. Enable Medicare to negotiate lower prescription drug prices for everyone
End Fossil Fuel Subsidies: Big fossil fuel companies receive $15 billion every year in direct government subsidies –– and even claimed $8.2 billion in 2020 from tax-law changes in the CARES Act pandemic relief bill. The US government has propped up the coal, oil, and gas industry for decades, even though a majority of voters want to end fossil fuel subsidies.
Financially Punish Union Busters: create monetary penalties for companies that violate workers’ union rights.
Keep Immigration Fixes: there's currently a path to citizenship for dreamers, TPS, farmworkers, and essential workers.

Hi! My name is NAME. I want to thank the Representative for voting to approve the $3.5 trillion budget blueprint. I want the Representative to continue fighting for the full $3.5 trillion budget. We need the budget to include fixes to Medicare, ending fossil fuel subsidies, and protecting workers. Again, thank you for voting to approve the budget blueprint. I hope the Representative will fight for the full budget and will not stop fighting until we have the full budget passed.
