1,300 institutional leaders from across the state of Texas convened in San Antonio to publicly launch a campaign to turnout 5% of the projected vote in support of their non-partisan agenda for families. This agenda includes workforce development, public education, access to college, healthcare, infrastructure, a stop to Arizona-style anti-immigrant legislation and a balanced plan to address the $18 Billion state deficit. Leaders committed to organizing 2,625 neighborhood walkers to focus on 166 precincts in order to turn out 225,000 voters this fall.
