Every Day:  
HRC Phonebank     

We're teaming up with the DFW Human Rights Campaign to mobilize our volunteers against any anti-LGBTQ efforts that will be taken by the Texas GOP during Abbott's special session. Every day for five weeks, we're calling voters to fight anti-LGBTQ+ legislation. Bring your friends and a fully-charged phone!

What: Phonebank for DFW Human Rights Campaign

Where: Dallas County Democratic Party Headquarters - 4209 Parry Ave., Dallas 75223

Call us at 214-821-8331 for the hours each day.

If we're making at least 500 calls a day, that would be over 300 call sheets printed per week. Phonebanks waste A LOT of paper! To be better advocates for the Earth and also more efficient, we're raising funds to buy small laptops for our volunteers to use at HQ and go completely paperless. These devices will go a long way - not just for phonebanking but also training and general office use for volunteers, interns, and precinct chairs. Please donate $25 today! Or if you'd like to donate an old laptop or desktop computer, you can bring it by our office at 4209 Parry Ave., Dallas 75223.
