Blue Action Democrats - Southwest Austin (TX)

Flipping Awesome Fundraiser featuring Wendy Davis & Julie Oliver

We're so excited about flipping seats in Texas, we're holding a Flipping Awesome Fundraiser to do it!


Join us to raise money for 2020 to:

  • recruit and train volunteers,
  • register voters, and
  • educate and mobilize Democratic voters


Where: The Highball

1120 S Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78704


When: Sunday, July 14,

VIP Happy Hour: 3 pm

Fundraiser & Party: 4-6 pm


What: Flipping Awesome Fun


We need to flip just 9 more seats to flip the Texas House BLUE.


  • In 2018, 17 Texas House Republicans won by less than 10 points. 
  • Nine of those won in districts that Beto won. 
  • Eight of the 17 won by less than 5 points.


We can do this!

We have people ready to organize in the 17 state house districts where Republicans are most vulnerable.


If we win 9 of those, we get to elect a Democratic Speaker of the House in 2021. We will have a seat at the table for redistricting to draw fair maps. And we get to be a major force in driving the agenda of the 2021 legislative session.


And increasing turnout in those Texas House districts will drive turnout for our targeted Congressional Districts and U.S. Senate race.


Funding is essential to our mission of grassroots organizing in these flippable districts.

General Admission Tickets are $76 because if we flip 9 more seats, then we will have a majority (76 Democrats) in the Texas House.


We are offering limited sponsorship levels and VIP tickets to the VIP Happy Hour with Democratic elected representatives and candidates.
