Today’s Action: Sign up to virtually phone bank TONIGHT for Jessica Cisneros, TX-28!

Progressive champion and immigration lawyer Jessica Cisneros is running to unseat one of the most conservative roadblocks in the Democratic party, anti-choice Rep. Henry Cuellar. Now, more than ever, we must prioritize electing pro-choice advocates who will unabashedly defend reproductive rights in Congress. Having a Democrat like Cisneros emerge victorious in a virulently anti-choice state like Texas would be a game-changing win this election year. Rep. Cuellar won his last primary battle against Cisneros by a mere 2,000 votes; this race is absolutely winnable, and we must rally to make it a reality.

The primary run-off in Texas is next Tuesday, May 24th, and the Cisneros campaign needs all hands on deck to get out the vote in Texas’ 28th district! Join tonight’s virtual phonebank event from 7-9 PM EDT and talk to voters in TX-28 about Cisneros’ vision for victory — if you can spare just two hours, your service could be the difference!

No phone-banking experience is required; whether you’re new to the game or have been to several rodeos, you are both welcome and needed at this event. It’s time to put in volunteer hours like your life literally depends on it — because, for many people in this country, it actually does.

Cisneros has endorsements from Democratic all-stars like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Ayanna Pressley, and Pramila Jayapal. Sign up to phone bank TONIGHT from 7-9PM EDT and help her win next week’s crucial primary runoff!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
