2020 Annual Report
2020 was a deeply difficult year. I wasn’t sure how I would feel when I sat down to write this. But, as I look back, I have to tell you — I am incredibly proud of what we accomplished, in spite of everything, because of you.
—Aimee Arrambide, Avow Executive Director
Thanks to you, we expanded our ability to communicate and mobilize across the state — even in the face of a pandemic.
Unapologetic and All About Abortion
Better than a questionnaire
For the first time in decades, we endorsed candidates (26 of them!). But it wasn’t just about a questionnaire, because this isn’t just about one campaign cycle. Our endorsement process is about changing the culture for good.
Culture change requires accountability. That’s why all 26 Avow endorsed candidates took this pledge:
Abortion Access Champions Pledge
- Vote against any legislation that restricts or stigmatizes abortion
- Use language that destigmatizes abortion and doesn’t cause any further harm to abortion rights and access
- Vote for a Speaker of the House who supports abortion rights
- Join and be an active member of the Women’s Health Caucus
- Introduce or co-sponsor a bill that expands or destigmatizes abortion access
A New Kind of Campaign
It isn’t just about one campaign — it’s about changing the way we talk about abortion
on the campaign trail, at the legislature, and in our daily lives.
And changing it for good.
Changing the Game in Real-time
26 candidates completed the endorsement process — and created immediate change on the campaign trail.
We're not backing down
As we head into another campaign cycle, we’re excited to build upon these milestones with you. We proved that even in the face of a global pandemic, the fight for abortion rights in Texas is a critical part of the political conversation. Together, we will create a world where every Texan is thriving, trusted, and free to pursue the life they want.
Let’s be bold.
