It is time to send a loud and clear message to Mayor Turner and city council. WE WILL NOT ALLOW SB4 IN OUR CITY! Mayor Turner needs to hear from VOTING CITIZENS!! Stand with us as we demand safety for all who live in our city.

    • Bissonnet is one of the busiest streets for sex trafficking in Houston. Most of Free the Captives’ teen trafficking victims have been forced to work on Bissonnet, and the buyers (aka “Johns”) have absolutely no shame in driving up and down Bissonnet looking for a girl to buy. It is time to show them that Houston does care!
    • Join us from 3pm to 9pm on Oct. 13 and 14 for an anti-human trafficking rally! Let’s make Houston safe for our daughters!

HOW TO BECOME A PRECINCT CHAIR

So, are you interested in being a precinct chair? Here are the steps you will need to take:

  1. Find out what precinct you're in:
  2. See if there is currently a precinct chair for your precinct HERE
  3. If there is not a precinct chair currently listed for your precinct and you would like to step up and make a difference, begin the process by contacting your county's Democratic Party (see HOUSTON AREA DEMOCRATIC PARTIES section above for links)

WHO REPRESENTS ME?

In these difficult political times, it is crucial to know not just who represents you in Congress and the Texas Legislature, but also how to contact that person's office. As a constituent, you are their employer and it is your right to let your opinion be known about legislation.

Obviously the first step is identifying who exactly represents you. You should keep handy the contact information for your two US Senators, your US Congressional Member, your State Senator, and your State Representative. There are several sites that can perform this service for you, but here are my recommendations:

  1. Who Represents Me (maintained by the Texas Legislature)
  2. Who Are My Representatives (maintained by Politiwatch)
  3. Find Your Elected Officials (maintained by Common Cause)
  4. Find Your Reps 
  5. Contacting Congress (Members of Congress only)

Each of these services should provide you with a link to each representative's webpage that contains contact information.
