Please join us for the FIRST EVER Local Progress Texas State Convening in Austin, TX from Friday, April 5 to Saturday, April 6. On Thursday, April 4, Local Progress will hold pre-conference Day of Action at the Capitol, with more details to come at a later date.

Register today!

This is a gathering you don’t want to miss! Join us in building a network of progressive local elected officials working hand-in-hand with community and labor organizations for a Texas where all of us can live with dignity and the freedom to thrive.

We’re excited to bring together local leaders from all over the Lone Star State for two days of strategy sessions, inspiring speakers, skills workshops, and charting out the future of public service in our state. You can expect programming on topics ranging from state interference and workers’ rights to school financing and immigrant rights. We’ll have workshops on Housing for All, Planning for Texas in 2050, and more. We can guarantee you’ll leave the convening informed, energized, and ready to move our localities and our state forward.

We have no registration fee and limited financial assistance is available upon request; please register as soon as possible to be considered for aid.

Thank you and we’ll be in touch with more information soon. For questions about registration, logistics, or other convening-related matters, please contact Mercedes Fulbright (mfulbright@populardemocracy.org).
