We are starting several committees, and need your help, to name a few:
There are other opportunities to get involved as well such as fundraisers and service projects. Call (936) 825 4846 or (936) 419-1425 to get connected with fellow Texans trying to make a positive difference.
Our tax system is rigged in favor of big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent. As Democrats, we want a fairer system, one that gives tax cuts to hard working families and small business owners and provides us all with more public goods like efficient public transportation, healthcare for all and debt-free college.
We believe no one who works full-time should live in poverty. We want to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour, invest in job training and technical education and expand family leave so that you can care for a sick loved one without the fear of losing your job.
Our current school finance system is broken. It leaves our schools - urban, rural and suburban - underfunded, threatening the livelihoods of the next generation. Cuts to education at the state level results in higher property taxes and under-performing schools at the local level.
It shouldn’t matter whether you’re a mechanic, a cashier or a CEO - your child deserves access to a top quality public education. We also believe that every student who is willing and able should have the opportunity to obtain a college degree, certificate or technical training without being saddled with debt.
We adhere to the affirmation of the Declaration of Independence that life is an unalienable right. To that end, President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010. The ACA stopped the inhumane practice of lifetime caps on care and insurance companies denying coverage or charging higher premiums for preexisting conditions like diabetes or even pregnancy.
The Democratic Party believes in liberty. We define liberty by what you can do, not by what you can keep others from doing. We believe in: to a free and open internet; fighting against laws that encourage and legalize the racial profiling of immigrants and people of color; in a justice system where everyone is treated equally under the law, regardless of race or income.
