WOW Dems Committee Updates – February 2017

WOW Dems Committee Updates – February 2017

Fundraising:

The WOW Dems Fundraising Committee continues to work on new FUNdraisers including a family event on Saturday, June 24. Save the date to attend the WOW Super Bowl Saturday for a day of bowling for a great cause. We will be renting out the newly renovated Super Bowl Plano. Get your team ready – there will be prizes and more. Also in the works is an Oktoberfest Beer and Food event and the not-be-missed WOW Dems big Gala will be held in February 2018.

Legislative:

The Texas legislature is in session and we are watching.  The Texas legislature meets for only 140 days (from Jan 10 thru May 29) every other year, which means a great deal of activity in a very short period of time.  If we want to affect legislation in Texas, the time to act is now!  The Legislative committee is tracking bills related to abortion access, immigration, education funding and vouchers, child protection, religious liberty, bathroom access, property taxes, and more.  But we aren’t just tracking bills.  We are also attending Lobby Days in Austin, visiting our elected officials, attending marches, rallies, protests, and writing letters.

We want you to join us! Mark your calendar for Planned Parenthood Lobby Day on April 5 and Blue Ribbon Lobby Day on April 10.

Follow WOW Dems on Facebook, Twitter  and MeetUp to get the latest news about protests, rallies, and other action items. Schedule a visit with your elected officials.  Not sure how to get a visit, or what to say once you do?  The Legislative committee is here to help.  Any questions or ideas for activism can be addressed to [email protected]. Join us in making your voice heard!
