Our first in-person gathering was on June 7, 2021, when we co-hosted a press conference with other Texas groups in coordination with 49 other states to bring awareness to the need for a Third Reconstruction in America.

Dallas/Collin partnered with Faith Forward Dallas whose chair, Rabbi Andrew Paley, spoke during the event. Members divided into teams to contact local media, manage phone / text banks and send emails to their networks and faith leaders.

Also in June of 2021, we joined Faith Forward Dallas and United Way of Dallas to enroll applicants in the Emergency Rental Assistance program for tenants who have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Much of the $1.9 billion allocated to Texas has gone unused because many eligible tenants are either unaware of the program or need help submitting the application. (We discovered that on average, about 2 hours was needed to complete each application.) 

Summer/Fall 2020

Dallas/Collin distributed 1,000 postcards with a QR code linked to REGISTER2VOTE.ORG, targeting area food banks, parents in parking lots after-school, Parkland clinics, etc. The reverse side of the postcard was in Spanish and in some cases the postcards were stapled to a voter registration cards with the label:
