Elections

In 2021, Texas essentially banned abortion by passing SB 8, a bill that outlaws abortion as early as 6-weeks gestation and emboldens fringe extremists to sue Texans who help their loved ones access abortion care. To make matters worse, we’re expecting a Supreme Court decision in June that could overturn Roe v. Wade. The state of abortion rights in our state and in our country is in crisis.

Now more than ever, Texas needs leaders who are willing to unapologetically fight for unrestricted abortion access. Our political program is designed to identify and uplift the leaders who are willing to do just that.
