Willie Nelson will be joining Reverend Dr. William Barber, Beto O’Rourke, , and thousands of Texans at a rally for democracy and voting rights in Austin this Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Texas State Capitol

The For the People Act can pass the U.S. Senate and become law this year if we bring our fellow Texans into this fight to help push the President and Democratic Senators to use their power to secure free and fair elections.

This voting rights bill — which would ensure equal access to early voting and mail-in voting, provide for automatic voter registration, make election day a national holiday, and eliminate gerrymandering and dark money — will bring tens of millions more Americans into our elections and roll back voter suppression efforts in Texas and the rest of the country.

But the only way it passes is if we push those in power to get it done. That's how John Lewis did it 56 years ago, when he led a march from Selma to Montgomery. The courage of those marchers helped compel President Lyndon Johnson to pass the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

This rally will culminate a Selma-like march from Georgetown to Austin. The march will culminate in a voting rights rally in front of the state Capitol.

BCDP Headquarters location

BCDP HQ is open in all its renovation glory

For security and the increase in the local COVID numbers, the party office closed in January. During that time BCDP has renovated the space with a new coat of paint and the installation of new carpet. The reno team also purged unneeded materials and tidied up considerably.

A second more in depth purge is being underway.

The party moved in this location in 2004. Over time, furniture has been purchased and donated. Some of it is just looking a little worse for wear, meriting the purchase of at least one desk and some other office necessities.

Several have generously offered to donate to that purchase. Please make your donation to by check and mail to the Brazos County Democratic Party, PO Box 3232, Bryan, TX 77805-3232 or through our ActBlue account.

Once folks are feeling comfortable with socializing in a group, BCDP will plan a Grand Reopening event.

It feels really great to have a nice place where like-mind Dems can work toward Turning Brazos County Blue!

Thanks for your support!

Wanda Watson, BCDP Chair
