The Winter Storm hurt many Texans, and a few tragically died. Several of our members are STILL without water. Our Revolution Texas led a deep investigative dive into what all went wrong -- from ERCOT to power plants to GOP leadership failures. Click here to share your winter storm story.

Our Revolution Texas organized and hosted a press conference, regarding the winter storm, with Rep. Rosenthal, Rep. Hinojosa, Rep. Crockett, Rep. Talarico, Cristina Tzintzún, Public Citizen, and Indivisible. Each speaker demanded action from the TX Government to protect us from climate chaos. Click here to Demand Action from the TX Government.

Immediately following our press conference, the Texas Legislature began hearings on what went wrong with the winter storm. Our Revolution Texas' Clayton Tucker, Kristi Lara, and Chris Vasquez went to the Texas Capitol to demand ACTION from our representatives -- both the reps that are friendly to us and otherwise. Click here to become a member to help us buy supplies, such as legislative packets and face masks, for our next visit to the TX Capitol.

Our Revolution Tarrant County team in the DFW area showed up to canvass our communities. Having learned how to safely block walk from Georgia, our volunteers made sure folks safely knew that municipal elections are coming up and that they have some great progressive candidates on the ballot. Click here to become a 2021 volunteer!

Our Revolution East Texas held its Feb meeting this last week. We discussed and made plans on how to chip away at the red GOP wall in East Texas. "If the big cities were going to turn Texas blue, they already would have. The only way to turn Texas blue is to turn out folks in South, West, and East Texas," said one of our activists. Click here to RSVP to their next meeting.

During our monthly meeting, Our Revolution heard from several great leaders from around Texas. We heard from Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee regarding reparations, LULAC President Domingo Garcia regarding the Vanessa Guillén Act, Rep. Jasmine Crockett about the Green New Deal, and David Johnson about abolishing what we can deem as the "prison industrial complex" -- regarding how the 13th Amendment created a loophole that corporations and governments exploit to force folks labeled as "criminals" to do work without pay. Click here to sign our petition demanding JUSTICE FOR ALL.

Our Revolution Texas launched our Power to the People! Campaign. We're fighting to ensure our lights stay on and our water stays running, regardless of the weather. We're doing this by hold officials accountable, demanding our power grid against climate chaos, and calling for a TX Green New Deal. Click here to sign our petition for a Green New Deal.
