Each petition signature will generate a message to the Texas House Democratic Caucus and pro-voter legislators thanking them for defending democracy and telling them to stay the course.
For the second time this year, Texas Democrats broke quorum in the Texas Legislature to protect our right to vote.
It’s a historic moment that highlights the urgent need to defend democracy, as radical, far-right conservatives continue pushing Jim Crow-style voter suppression measures to restrict access to the ballot box and hold onto power.
By leaving the state, pro-voter lawmakers didn’t just stop Gov. Greg Abbott's anti-voter legislation. They also stopped dangerous proposals to ban medication abortion, attack trans kids, curtail Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion education, and force Texans into the cash bail system.
The stakes could not be higher. Democracy is on the line, and Texas Democrats are boldly doing what’s needed to stop voter suppression and other attacks on our rights. These lawmakers left their families, their homes, and even put themselves at risk of getting arrested because they recognize the importance of this moment.
While Texas Dems continue the fight in DC, join us in sending them support from back home. Sign this petition to let them know Texans have their back and are cheering them on.
