Texas Democrats will fight for a well-functioning government that acts based on facts and evidence to preserve the life, health, and well-being of every person. The interdependence of every Texan on the actions of every other Texan challenges us to give of ourselves so that none of us fall. Together, we will overhaul the social contract and establish a new economic engine that allows all residents to thrive.
Government exists to achieve together what we cannot achieve as individuals or families. That government must serve all people. A representative democracy is only truly representative when every citizen is guaranteed the inalienable right to representation by fair and open elections.
Texas Democrats will fight to ensure equal opportunity and freedom for all human beings – no matter a person’s race, ethnicity, disability, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic situation, or immigration status.
Our economy must benefit all Texans. Robust public and higher education along with technical training opportunities are critical for our future. Our criminal justice system should treat all people fairly and focus on restitution and remediation.
Healthcare is fundamental to preserving the unalienable right to life for all people. Healthcare rights are human rights. We owe future generations a clean and healthy planet; and a strong social safety net that creates opportunity for all Americans.
Texas Democrats support our veterans. We will identify, advance, and address our veterans’ most critical issues.
