Join us for a Moral March from Georgetown to Austin

July 27–31, 2021

We must fight for the soul of Texas, because it is also a fight for the soul of our nation. It’s time for a Moral March on Austin to demand an end to the filibuster, full passage of the For the People Act, full passage of the Voting Rights Act, and a $15/hour minimum living wage.

Event Details: More event details will be released later this week. We will be providing food and supplies to those that participate. Buses will also be arranged in all of our major cities to bring folks to and from the march.

The march will start in Georgetown, Texas, on July 27.

  • We are looking for partner organizations on the ground that can cover 2- to 3-mile stretches of the march (so folks don't get overheated.)

  • If your organization is interested in participating, please fill out the RSVP form.

  • We will end the march at the Capitol with a rally on July 31.

  • We also plan to have a caravan with 151 cars on the last day to follow the march to the Capitol (151 cars for the 151 years since the passage of the 15th Amendment.)

BCDP Headquarters location

307 S. Main, Suite 102

Bryan, Texas 77803

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

Day of Doing

Join us this Sunday!

Date: Sunday, July 22, 2021
Time: 2:00–5:00 p.m.

The Day of Doing, hosted by Young Dems BCS, is a social event to bring community members together to meet with organizers who are already doing vital work in the Brazos Valley. Many people are looking for ways to serve their community, especially after such a rough year as 2020. Our goal is to help those who are feeling motivated but unsure of what specific actions they can take to make connections with existing groups operating in the area. Whether you’re interested in tackling homelessness, helping bring healthcare to everyone, or simply working to get out the vote - there are dozens of ways to give back to the community we share. We encourage community members of all ages to come out and find a way to get involved!

The Day of Doing will take place from 2:00pm to 5:00pm on Sunday July 25th at the Larry J Ringer public library in College Station. If you are a representative for an organization serving the residents of the Brazos Valley and would like an opportunity to present at the event, please email youngdemsbcs@gmail.com
