North Texans Set Hot Pace as Election Day Nears

Your Dallas AFL-CIO is knocking on doors, telephoning, preparing signs, and even demonstrating in the streets to win these critical elections  for working  families.  Our work is paying off with record voter turnout numbers. The New York Times says that Texas has been declared a “battleground” state.

Careful screening and analysis, plus decades of experience, give your labor movement the ability to pick out the best candidates for working people. A complete list of Texas endorsements is listed at http://www.texasaflcio.org/2016-endorsements/.

In North Texas, unionists are particularly committed to these districts:

District 105: Terry Meza

District 107: Victoria Neave

Labor Pushes Democracy!

Before early voting started on October 24, activists working with the AFL-CIO in North Texas had  already knocked on 2,500 doors and made thousands of phone calls!
Our Saturday mobilizations and phone banking events are drawing record participation.
