We’re excited to continue our summer event tour at the Texas Democratic Convention this week in Dallas. Come see us at Booth 400! This year marks the first time the party has held an in-person convention since 2018, including a three-day convergence of the state’s Democratic leaders and thousands of delegates seeking to hone a midterm message undoubtedly centered on abortion (overturn of Roe v. Wade) and gun violence (Uvalde Shooting), that galvanize dissatisfied Texan voters to make a change.
Mobilizing concerned citizens to get out and vote is at an all-time high as we quickly approach midterm elections, especially following the state’s Republican shrug to recent shootings, including the killing of 19 students and two teachers in Uvalde. Our team is thrilled to join the conversations this week, learn from Democratic state leaders, and share more about how many progressive political platforms across the country use Hustle’s texting for political campaigns to connect with voters and encourage honest conversations with supporters that enhance various aspects of their campaigns in innovative ways.
