What We Do

Powered by People is stepping up to reach the voters who will decide the most consequential elections of our lifetime. Since launching in late 2019, our 20,000 volunteers have enabled us to run the largest progressive voter mobilization effort in the history of our state.

In addition to partnering with exciting Democratic candidates to help win competitive Texas battleground districts, we are focused on building the long-term changes to the Texas electorate that will outlast any one candidate or campaign cycle.

Our volunteers live and work in every part of the state, allowing us to meet voters where they are. No neighborhood is too small, too big, too red, or too blue to receive the in-person, human-to-human contact that we know is essential to registering and turning out voters.

And while Texas Republicans have made our state the hardest in the nation to register to vote and cast a ballot, we are putting in the work to reach those most targeted by GOP voter suppression and bring them into our elections.

Thanks to this work, we’ve registered 250,000 Texans to vote. We’ve called, texted, and most importantly, met voters — at their doorsteps and in their communities — to make sure they understand that their vote is key to turning the tide of extremism in Texas and ensuring our state lives up to its truest, fullest potential. 

We are in this for the long-haul. We keep our eyes on the prize, knowing the steps we take today and over the coming years will allow us to register and mobilize the necessary voters to ultimately deliver Texas’ 40 electoral college votes to the Democratic nominee for president for the first time since 1976. Imagine how much better our country will be then.

Imagine how it will feel when we flip the statehouse and elect Democrats to statewide office, allowing us to restore abortion rights, address gun violence, and make progress on every other issue of importance to us.

Now imagine what it will feel like to know that you were a part of that effort.

We can’t do this without you. I hope you will continue to contribute and continue to volunteer to keep this work going. No matter where you live in Texas, or even if you live out of state, you have a place on this team.
