And Now, A Few Words…
It's hard to believe that the summer is nearly over. Here at Texans Together, we are energized and ready for the fall. Here is a sampling of our summer activities, by the numbers:
9 Hip Hop Music and Voting Events. Matt Sonzala, the premier hip hop promoter in Texas, is arranging with us 9 hip hop events in Southwest and South Houston to promote voting to younger, multi-cultural, lower income residents. The artists will tout voting and voter captains and staff will get pledges to vote, recruit volunteers, and take people to the early voting polls.
2 Focus Groups. We just finished professionally-led focus groups in Alief on what impedes lower income, non-voting minorities from voting in Harris County and what might motivate them to vote. We are learning a lot and finding that there are ways to motivate people.
We have a lot to be optimistic about, and I hope you will stay tuned as we move into the fall campaign season. Thanks, as always, for your support!
