We are a group of constituents of Texas’s 21st Congressional District who are working together to push back against the Trump agenda. Our representative, Lamar Smith, is a principal enabler of Trump (he was the first Congressional Republican to donate to Trump’s campaign!), but we aim to do our part to halt the rollback of our nation’s most fundamental progressive principles. We are formed in agreement with the principles of the Indivisible strategy:
- Resist Trump’s agenda. We believe Trump’s agenda is racist, authoritarian, and corrupt, and it must be stopped.
- Focus on local, defensive congressional advocacy. We demand that our own local Members of Congress serve as our voice in Washington, D.C.
- Embrace progressive values. We model inclusion, respect, and fairness in all of our actions.
We are inspired by the Indivisible Guide, and we support and work with Indivisible Austin and the other local Indivisible groups. Read more about Indivisible here! More detailed information about our group is here.
