The latest news in the Texas progressive movement

Texas Working Families Party is going into high gear for the Dallas-area municipal elections. Take a look below at some of the critical local work we’re doing, then plan to get involved to fight for working families around the state.

Mark April 8 on your calendar now for our next monthly meeting! Come out to meet candidates for Dallas City Council, talk through our 2019 plans, and commit to get involved to change politics in DFW. We have just a little more than a month before the election and we need you! Click here to RSVP.

Our Turn Texas — DFW municipal elections

We launched our 2019 Municipal Program called Our Turn Texas! DFW municipal elections are won and lost by a handful of votes but those elected make important decisions about our communities. They set priorities like school funding, creating affordable housing, transportation policy, how public safety is administered, and other issues that affect working people.

We want to know what you think! Take our online poll and tell us who you support


Texas Working Families Party has endorsed Racheal Hill for Lancaster City Council, Carma Morgan For Cedar Hill Independent School District Trustee, Victor Gonzalez for City Council Place 5, Councilwoman Tartisha Hill in District 7 in Balch Springs, and Celia Morgan for Arlington City Council, District 5.

Learn more about the candidates.

There are a few more endorsements in the works that we will announce in the next week or two.
