There are many groups working to ensure Texas becomes a blue state and is one where all people are fairly represented. Here are some who are working cooperatively to make this happen.
All on the Line Texas
All On The Line is a national campaign to restore fairness to our democracy and ensure every American has an equal say in our government.
This campaign is driven by grassroots organizers who want to make a lasting impact. Whether you care about making sure everyone has access to quality, affordable health care, achieving equal pay, reducing the gun violence that plagues our schools and communities, protecting voting rights, or dealing with the urgent threat of climate change, there is a fundamental structural barrier that prevents progress on these issues: manipulated electoral maps drawn with surgical precision by politicians to preserve their party’s political power and silence the will of the people.
This practice, “gerrymandering,” is when politicians pick their voters instead of voters picking their elected officials and it impacts communities across the nation. The All On The Line campaign is fighting against gerrymandering and pushing for fair maps in redistricting.
Center for Common Ground–Reclaim Our Vote
The 2016 elections taught us that voting services must be available year-round and not just a few weeks prior to an election, people need to gather in a community to learn about national, state and local policy/politics and not just sit at home in front of their computer or on their phone and finally people want to know what to do to create the change they want. In order to end voter suppression, people need to understand whose vote is being suppressed, why it is being suppressed and what options are available to fight and ultimately end voter suppression.
Under-served communities require many different voter services that include: voter registration, Photo ID review, Restoration of Rights for Returning Citizens information, rides to pick up Photo ID and rides to the polls.

Field Team 6
Register Democrats. Save the World.
We’re using data analytics, targeting software and our very own nerd brains to hunt down unregistered progressives and get them on the voter rolls where they belong. And to sign up every registered Democrat to vote from home!
Flip the Texas House
What is 17<10?
In 2018, 17 Texas State House Republicans won their seats by less than 10 points. Eight of those won by less than five points. We only need to flip nine of those seats in 2020 to gain a majority in the Texas House! By strategically increasing the number of registered Democratic voters and getting them to the polls, these districts are WINNABLE!
Flip the West
Flip the West is an organization dedicated to harnessing grassroots power to help Democrats take back the U.S. Senate and win the White House. Our goal: To replace Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell with a Democratic President (Joe Biden) and a Democratic Senate Majority. The path to the largest possible Democratic Senate majority depends on flipping Senate seats west of the Mississippi River. Our role: To work with blue wave activists and organizations to make phone calls, send texts, write postcards, and register new voters resulting in unprecedented voter turnout in the 2020 election cycle.
We’re a grassroots movement of thousands of local Indivisible groups with a mission to elect progressive leaders, rebuild our democracy, and defeat the Trump agenda.
Postcards to Voters
Postcards to Voters are friendly, handwritten reminders from volunteers to targeted voters giving Democrats a winning edge in close, key races coast to coast.
Powered by People
We’re reaching out to all corners of the state, encouraging folks to register to vote, and talking to current registered voters in rural, suburban, and urban Texas.
Powered by People will not only be working in competitive State House districts, we will be expanding our organizing to every single one of the 254 counties of Texas, calling and texting every single Democrat to make sure that we help lead the largest voter turnout program in the history of the state.
Rideshare2Vote Aware is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to educating and developing the next generation of voters and political leaders. The organization provides interactive training programs and entry-level opportunities for high school and college students, as well as young professionals, who want to get involved in the political process. Rideshare2Vote Aware interns and fellows have the drive to make political waves, rather than wait for the waves to happen around them.
Sister District Project
Win power in strategic state legislatures across the nation so that we can draw fair districts in 2021 and catalyze real progressive change for the next decade.
Swing Texas Left
Let’s turn Harris County so Blue in 2020 that we flip the whole State of Texas!
Our motto: Don’t just vote: volunteer!
We need your help to be successful and the stakes couldn’t be higher. From our successful efforts in 2018 alongside local and state campaigns, including Lizzie Fletcher, we learned important lessons we can leverage to expand our efforts for 2020.
We will provide training, strategy, and tactics; and we’ll have fun along the way! Bring your friends!
Through our volunteer efforts, we will work “smart” together to elect Democrats in the Houston area by registering new voters, increasing voter turnout, and educating constituents about races up and down the ballot.
