New year, new Congress ✨

Today, the most diverse Congress in American history is being sworn in. Grassroots supporters like you helped elect Sylvia Garcia and Veronica Escobar, the first Latinas elected to Congress from Texas and Colin Allred and Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, who both flipped their districts.

Across our country, 44 Congressional seats were flipped from Republican to Democratic with record numbers of women, people of color, LGTBQ, and young people now representing us.

Democrats are already getting to work for the people. Now, we want to know what matters to you. Take a moment to fill out the official 2019 Texas Democrats Priorities Survey:

Whether it’s reducing the role of money in politics, restoring faith in our government, and making it easier for people to vote, moving legislation to combat gun violence, or all of the above — we want to know.

Let’s get to work,

Gilberto Hinojosa
Chair, Texas Democratic Party
