Organizing to win College for All in Texas

This action is for everyone who lives in Texas. We want to organize people to put pressure on members of Congress (or people who are running to become members of Congress) to cancel all student debt and make public universities completely free. This can take many forms. Reach out to each other, start talking and making plans. Here is some information that you might find helpful.

Senate
Senators John Cornyn (Republican) and Ted Cruz (Republican) have not yet taken a position on

. Can you convince them to support it?

Use the comments below to plan and coordinate with each other on a state-wide level.

The Indivisible Guide provides good advice about how to set up a meeting with your members of congress (or the people currently campaigning for office), how to show up at town halls, how to write letters to the editor, etc. We can do all of that and more. Feel free to get creative and come up with your own plans in addition to these tried and true methods.

I am doing it again this year, dont make mo sense. Point blank if a person was disabled in 2015, still disabled in 2019? Just get rid of these loans, quit tarnishing people lives!!!
