Most people know me as an actress, but I’ve worked with Planned Parenthood since I was 19 to make sure all American women have access to the contraceptive care they need. And when Wendy Davis launched her filibuster in support of women’s health, I knew she was the woman needed as the next governor of Texas.
When she took the floor for her filibuster, Wendy knew what was at stake. She knew the old boys network in Austin was trying to restrict women’s access to the health care they need, and she wasn’t going to let it happen without a fight.
Texas has come to a fork in the road. One path will lead to more of the same — more insider politics, more cronyism in the state capital, more of the policies that have left too many Texas families working harder than ever just to tread water.
The other path — Wendy’s path — leads to a Texas in which everyone can succeed. Wendy knows firsthand how difficult it can be to pull yourself up, and she’s committed to making sure every hardworking Texan has the same opportunities she’s had.
Thanks for supporting Wendy.
