MOVE Texas Lobby Day
In 2018, MOVE Texas had a momentous year. We registered 30,000 new voters and in a midterm year, Texas topped the nation in early voting totals among young people. The increase in turnout was 500%. We also fought and won local advocacy fights like the paid sick time ordinance in San Antonio and the expansion of early voting in Hays County. We also distributed 200,000 voters guides and saw candidates who spoke to young people’s’ issues win their elections.
In 2019, we want to take the civic and advocacy power we’re building to the state legislature. Our legislative agenda contains an ambitious slate of voting rights bills that we will champion and lead as well as items we will support as allies and oppose as organizers. On March 26th, we ask you to join us as we take students to the capitol in Austin to stand on the south steps and demand a Texas that believes in us. We will dispatch teams to representatives offices where our fellows and interns will lobby for MOVE’s agenda.
