Advocacy and Resistance Events from Progress Texas

Since the new administration has come into power, Texans across the state are taking peaceful action to stand up for social justice issues — we have come together, resisting the politics of fear and hate. We have seen a regressive legislative agenda in Texas in the past, but it seems even more harmful this year.

Join the resistance and show the opponents in our Capitol this session that they don’t represent our values. Find an issue that’s important to you and register for an advocacy and resistance event (and tell your friends):

Cover Texas Now Advocacy Day 2017

Monday, March 6 at 11:00 AM

Join health care advocates from across Texas on March 6 at 11 am at the Texas Capitol to advocate for health care for all Texans! Urge lawmakers to:

  • Defend the progress we’ve made under the Affordable Care Act;
  • Protect Medicaid for low-income children, seniors, pregnant women, and Texans with disabilities; and
  • Insist on expanding health coverage to the uninsured

Learn more about Advocacy Day, and RSVP to attend, here. If you can’t make it to Austin on March 6, but you’d still like to make an impact, please consider a $5 or $10 donation today, to help pay for the buses and meals to bring supporters to the Capitol. You can donate to Cover Texas Now’s campaign here
