For decades, Texan Democrats have stood with the African American community in the struggle for civil rights, equality of opportunity, and to protect our sacred right to vote.
Common values and concerns such as family, jobs, and education unite Democrats everywhere. President Obama and Democrats at all levels of public office continue to work tirelessly to advance the issues that matter most to African Americans, from civil rights to economic opportunity.
Texas Democrats fight for a new foundation for long-term economic growth, one that helps more than just a privileged few. We fight to ensure that jobs pay a living wage and for new opportunities for small businesses. We understand that for many, public education serves as the gateway to the American Dream. We must invest in our schools, make college more affordable, and expand opportunities for African Americans and for all Texans.
