Support Wendy Davis’ campaign for Texas governor!

#GiveToWendy

Last week, feminist filibustering shero, badass former teen mama, and Texas state representative announced that she is running for Governor of Texas in 2014. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot, Davis’ expected opponent – a strongly anti-choice one at that – already has a ton of campaign funding, and it’s really important that Wendy Davis is able to raise some funds too.

Goal ThermometerWe’re super excited to join an effort to raise funds for Wendy’s campaign today.

She can’t do it alone, folks, and electoral campaigns: they cost a lot of money! Hiring the best campaign advisors, getting savvy media folks, printing signs and flyers, and doing the groundwork necessary to get folks familiar with the issues – among many other things – all costs a pretty penny, and Wendy Davis needs our help.

If you can, please donate to her campaign today, or spread the word.

Verónica Bayetti Flores has spent the last years of her life living and breathing reproductive justice. She has led national policy and movement building work on the intersections of immigrants' rights, health care access, young parenthood, and LGBTQ liberation, and has worked to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought for paid sick leave, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. In 2008 Verónica obtained her Master’s degree in the Sexuality and Health program at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. She loves cooking, making art, listening to music, and thinking about the ways art forms traditionally seen as feminine are valued and devalued. In addition to writing for Feministing, she is currently spending most of her time doing policy work to reduce the harms of LGBTQ youth of color's interactions with the police and making sure abortion care is accessible to all regardless of their income.

Verónica is a queer immigrant writer, activist, and rabble-rouser.

    We’re so excited down in Texas to have Wendy Davis running ! I can assure you, people who’ve never been involved in or excited about politics are involved AND excited. It was really awesome when we had so much support during the all-night hearings & filibuster this summer – if you can chip in $5 or $10 today, you can help us build on that momentum. Thank you, Feministing readers!
