TAG Monthly Supporter Meeting

May 16 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

TAG Monthly Member/Supporter meetings occur the 2nd Sunday of each month from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. via Zoom.

Dear All,

It’s been a tough 118 days of the legislative session with 22 days left. We were able to get a hearing for the 6 Independent Redistricting Commissions that we submitted. Unfortunately, the remaining 6 bills, did not get a hearing including the Redistricting Transparency Bill, (B3112). Today is the day we resign ourselves to the fact that they have died in committee.

When I look at this from the perspective of what can give Texas the most help in our efforts to end gerrymandering in our state, 4 national issues come to the forefront:

1. Passing the For the People Act–HR1/S1; (passed the House; sitting in the Senate)

2. Passing the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act–HR4; (waiting for action in the House)

These two bills were described at length during our 14 February meeting and the video is on our Facebook page.

3. Passing DC Statehood–HR 51; (passed the House);

and, of course, all of this hinges on the 4th item–

4. Filibuster reform.

And you know what’s the best news around this?

There are many organizations with lots of resources that we can call upon to help us promote the agenda over the next couple of months. One of them spent a ton of money on an analysis of what verbiage is best to use to promote support and comprehension around these issues to the general public and to the media.

That is what our meeting on Sunday will address. We urge you to dedicate from 3-4:30pm on Sunday, 16 May 21, to learning and helping us create our campaign.
