  4. May 26, 2017HOT FLASH FRIDAY: SHOW CRUZ OUR OPPOSITION TO CUTS IN WOMEN'S HEALTH CARE, 11:00 AM, Office of Senator Ted Cruz, 808 Travis Street, Houston, TX
    • Join us in demonstrating our opposition to cuts and restrictions on women's health care that passed the House recently and are now under consideration by the Senate.  The House bill allows states to opt out of maternity coverage, contraceptive coverage,  and care for victims of domestic violence among other things plus "defunding" Planned Parenthood.  Senator Cruz is a member of the "Gang of 13" senators -- ALL MALE -- who are working on fashioning the republican version of health care coverage.  Looks like this republican administration along with the republican controlled House and Senate are targeting women, especially poor women, as they cut health care coverage.  So bring signs supporting Planned Parenthood and opposing current efforts to leave Texas women begging for health care coverage.    We'll be picketing in front of the office building downtown where Senator Cruz's Houston Office is located and at some point we'll send a delegation up to his office to make our position known.   We'll visit Cornyn's office the following Friday.
  5. May 31-June 2, 2017CORNYN STAKEOUT, 1:30 PM, 5300 Memorial Drive, Suite 980, Houston, TX 77007
  6. June 3, 2017WEAR ORANGE - HOUSTON, 10:00 AM, Levy Park, 3801 Eastside St, Houston, TX 77098
    • Stand up for safer communities free of gun violence. Come out on Saturday, June 3 for speakers, family-friendly activities, and some light refreshments.
    • Why #WearOrange? Because orange is a color that demands to be seen, and with over 90 Americans dying on the average American day, we have to be visible. So wear orange on National Wear Orange Day (June 2), and then join us on Saturday for Wear Orange Houston!
  7. June 3, 2017RALLY AND CANDLELIGHT VIGIL FOR TRUTH, 6:00 PM, location TBD
    • Join us as we gather together in Houston in solidarity with citizens from around our country on June 3rd and demand an independent investigation to foreign interference in our election, on the business ties and obligations of our President, on any crimes or collusions by our officials. TRANSPARENCY IS OUR RIGHT! #marchfortruth
  8. June 11, 2017STAND WITH ORLANDO VIGIL - ONE YEAR LATER, 8:00 PM, Hermann Park, 6001 Fannin, Houston, Texas 77030
    • Last year we experienced one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history. It took place in the early hours of Sunday, June 12, 2016 in Orlando's Pulse nightclub. This event is being held to stand in solidarity with those we lost, their loved ones and survivors of this tragic massacre.
  9. July 8, 2017WE DEMAND JUSTICE: ALVA BRAZIEL SOLIDARITY MARCH, 3:00 PM, Harris County Precinct 7 Constable May Walker, 5290 Griggs Rd, Houston, Texas 77021
    • We are marching from Precinct 7 to Cullen and Ward, where Alva Braziel was murdered by HPD Sergeants Louis Lopez and Edward Macias. We are remembering the 1 year anniversary of the murder of Alva Braziel and calling for an end to police brutality and state sanctioned violence. We are ending the night with a candlight vigil.
  10. October 7, 2017NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE MARCH, 11:00 AM, location TBD
    • MARCH GOAL: To help make the 2020 presidential election the first in which the majority of citizens elect the U.S. President and every vote in every state is equal.
  11. October 13, 2017WESEEYOU RALLY: WE SEE YOU, JOHNS, FUELING SEX TRAFFICKING!, 3:00 PM, Bissonnet St, Houston, TX 77099
    • We are calling for thousands of people to join Free the Captives on Oct. 13-14, 2017, as we line the streets of Bissonnet between Beltway 8 and 59 and to send a strong message to the Johns/buyers that our girls are not for sale.
    • 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.
