THE FIGHT FOR MEDICARE FOR ALL

Let’s start with our first story of our many Medicare for All and Medicare Expansion rallies we co-hosted all around Texas. Hundreds of Texans joined us as we demanded that the US make healthcare a human right. We rallied in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston, Corpus Christi, and McAllen -- some of these cities have never seen an M4A rally before! Some of y’all may have seen that media hit piece against OR regarding M4A and the Green New Deal. Click here to sign our petition to tell the corporate media that our support for Medicare for All has never been stronger.

POOR PEOPLE'S CAMPAIGN MARCH

ORTX showed up with our brothers and sisters with the Poor People’s Campaign march on Austin over the weekend! Many people rallied at the Capitol to demand that the US Senate end the Filibuster so that Congress can get to work by passing voting rights, a living wage, and vastly improved immigration laws. We heard speeches from Rev. William Barber, Beto O’Rourke, Julián Castro, Luci Johnson -- the daughter of President LBJ, Willie Nelson, and many more. Our Revolution is dedicated to ending the Filibuster to save Democracy. Will you join us by signing our petition calling for passing voting rights?

TEXAS PROGRESSIVE SUMMIT

Alrighty! So after a short summer break from our statewide monthly meetings, we’re roaring back with our Texas Progressive Summit! This will be a multi-segment interactive broadcast with several great speakers. Rep. Jasmine Crockett, Rep. Penny Shaw, Harris Attorney Christian Menefee, San Antonio City Councilwoman Teri Castillo, and more. Click here to learn more or to RSVP!

You can also text "2021" to 512-866-2396 to RSVP.

TELL BIDEN WE AFFORDABLE HOUSING

The federal moratorium of evictions has come to an end. More than 600,000 Texans are now at immediate risk of becoming homeless. Housing is just too unaffordable these days. Instead of taking the lead, President Biden has been deferring this issue to state governments (and we all know how that will turn out in Texas). Tell president Biden: we need affordable housing for all NOW!

★★★

IN SOLIDARITY WITH ST. VINCENT NURSES

OR North Texas (DFW) joined the St. Vincent Nurses in solidarity on Monday. St. Vincent Nurses have been on strike for over 143 days. They are demanding Medicare for All. OR NTX stands in solidarity with St. Vincent nurses. Support OR North Texas or your local chapter by joining our volunteer army!

TRUMPTY DUMPTY HAD A FALL

While not progressive news, we thought you would enjoy hearing that the candidate endorsed by Trump in a Fort Worth-area congressional race lost to a more moderate GOP candidate. We in no way support the moderate candidate, but we find some satisfaction in the fact that the Trump candidate followed in Trump’s footsteps by losing an election. 

Now help us find a solid progressive to run against the moderate who won. Chip in to support our efforts to recruit progressives to run for office!
