What We’re About
Indivisible TX Lege takes the Indivisible tactics of holding elected representatives to the Texas State Legislature accountable. The State Legislature has a decidedly different tenor than the US Congress. In true Texas fashion, it’s more “friendly,” where Texans from all districts are empowered to have their voices heard to all legislators, not just their own.
Why the Lege Should Matter to You
The Texas State Legislature has an outsized impact on the lives of Texans, and truly on America itself. The Texas Legislature draws congressional districts that can enable fair and equitable representation, or can gerrymander minorities into oblivion. That process, called Redistricting is set to happen in 2021.
Some other examples of the Texas Legislature’s impact on our lives include:
- Voting rights: Texas makes it hard to vote. Actually, it’s one of the worst states in the nation in this respect. It doesn’t have to be that way!
- Access to affordable healthcare: Texas is one of the last states that have not expanded Medicaid, and its failure to do so is costing Texans.
- Education of our children
- Access to firearms
- Creating a safe, clean, and sustainable environment
- Combating climate change
And so much more!!!
How to Make an Impact
Each Texan has one State Representative and one State Senator in the Texas Legislature. You can make an impact when you engage with your elected officials and make sure they know what is important to you, their constituent.
Here’s how you can do that:
- Find out who represents you, and save their numbers in your phone.
