Wish we could bypass all the ppl in the middle & meet w/
@realDonaldTrump 's Administration and let them know what these decriminalization/end-of-policing advocates/activist non-profit NGOs are doing 2 #atx. We could save them a lot of time.

1/12 Meet @19thNews, the nation’s first newsroom committed to making the news — and our democracy — more representative for America’s women. @eramshaw @amzam @emarvelous @andreamvaldez @joderlega 19thnews.org
2/12 A century ago, the 19th Amendment made voting a right regardless of gender. But this watershed moment excluded millions of women, including women of color, from the ballot box for generations.
3/12 Today, women are the majority. We’re more civically engaged than ever — marching on statehouses, voting at higher rates than men, seeking office in record numbers.
But we’re still marginalized, in gov’t and beyond.

THREAD: We're keeping track of the Democrats and progressives who have filed to be on the ballot for the 2020 primary! Here's our list so far ⬇️

#txlege #txsen #2020Election

progresstexas.org/blog/building-…
2/ TX has been trending Democratic for years, and it’s because of the work of organizers & advocates. Because of them, 2020 is a possible tipping point!

We can turn TX blue, but it won’t happen without even more work from even more progressives. #txlege #txsen #2020Election
3/ Up first, those who have filed for U.S. Congress:

TX-10 (#ATX): @MikeSiegelTX
TX-23 (#Helotes): Efrain V. Valdez
TX-31 (#RoundRock): @donnaimamTX

#txlege #txsen #2020Election

People are being assaulted, raped, and murdered by the homeless in #ATX. Decriminalizing homelessness is killing people. It’s literally evil.
They are arsonists

1. Prior to the Council vote, we requested the following info from APD:
-Who are the top Offenders in #atx?
-What offenses committed?
-Are they homeless?
-Drug abuser?
We were looking for the #s of homeless involved in crimes. If nothing else, to have a baseline
We did not get the info requested prior to the Council vote. All we wanted to know was just what percentage of the homeless were the main criminal element in #atx?
2. We saw the signs that Austin City Council had it all planned out ahead of time. They gave special information concerning the meeting to their SJW groups and planned. They planned it all on Monday prior to Thurs. meeting. This is how they work.

1/ Homelessness is decriminalized as of today in #ATX!

We're gonna be sharing back w/ directly impacted folks in the coming weeks but given that the new rules go into effect today & the persistent misinformation being spread, thought I'd share my interpretation of it all.
2/ Speaking of misinformation, this @statesman headline today feeds into the biggest lie being told about the new rules.

In fact, people won't be allowed to tent camp on sidewalks if it blocks passage or makes use of it unreasonably inconvenient.

statesman.com/news/20190628/…
3/ Here's the actual changes & new ordinances to read for yourself.

I think you'll see they're a lot different than all of the rumors & disingenuous nonsense being spread by mostly anonymous cops & conservative operatives trying to make inroads in #ATX.

1/3 The legislature in Texas has reduced expenditures per student for public #highered significantly over the past 15 years, in effect transferring the cost of having an educated workforce from society to the students and their families texastribune.org/2018/12/24/tex… via @TexasTribune
2/3 The resulting higher tuition limits access to #highered, reducing the talent and diversity of the prospective student pool that universities can educate and thus decreasing the impact of each dollar that the state spends.
3/3 Texas politicians tout #ATX's new $1B campus for Apple & @USarmy's 4-star command center as successes of a Texas model. But none of that will be possible moving forward without a robust, long-term funding plan from #txlege for public education, #highered, & infrastructure
