The Plan to Flip Texas

Last month we raised funds to Flip Texas State House seats! (The grand total will be revealed at the August meeting!) Thank you for supporting our Flipping Awesome Fundraiser!
This month, we'll learn more about the plan to do that from the Texas Democratic Party and Annie's List.

Blue Action Democrats started in January of 2018 as a Democratic club in Southwest Austin.
And we're doing things differently.
First of all, we want to get sh*t done.
It's great to talk about what's wrong in our politics, but what are we going to do about it?
We're ready to act. And we need you to join us to tackle specific, actionable tasks that you can do on a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon that will elect more Democrats in Texas.
Our message is spreading fast - we're adding chapters and teaching other activists to take action in their community.
Let's do this!
