This fundraiser supports Akilah Bacy, candidate for State House, Texas. Akilah Bacy is an outstanding candidate, currently doing well in the polls. This is SO important: in 2020, those elected to state legislatures will redraw the voting district maps for the next DECADE! Please help us end unethical gerrymandering.
Ticket holders will receive the link to the live stream from ActBlue Receipts. Your ticket purchase will begin supporting Akilah Bacy IMMEDIATELY, from the time of your donation. This is important: Texas early voting starts in mid-October!
If you cannot attend, please consider donating as an event sponsor to Save Our Democracy.
- Only 9 seats needed to take control of the Texas State House from those who may gerrymander unethically.
- Nine House districts in Texas – including 138 – voted for Beto O’Rourke in 2018.
- By supporting this event, you can help end unethical gerrymandering in all U.S. House and state legislative elections in Texas for the next ten years!
