Texas Progressive Alliance Round-Up—Gone To Texas
Here is the weekly posting of the Texas Progressive Alliance round-up. The TPA is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas. TPA members are citizen-bloggers working for a better Texas.
(Above–A movie I did not see. Here is some background on the phrase Gone To Texas from the excellent Handbook of Texas Online.)
Every Texan and every American has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes, engage in acts of civil disobedience, and to run for public office.
I normally offer a post to the round-up each week. But last week I forgot to do so. Oops.
The work of freedom and justice is up to each of us.
I say this every week in this space. There is nothing more basic and essential I can tell you.
