Our Revolution Texas Tour – San Antonio

The Revolutionize Texas tour with Nina Turner and Jim Hightower came through San Antonio!

Speakers

Amy Vilela suffered the tragic loss of her daughter, simply because she did not have health insurance. Now she FIGHTS so that this doesn’t happen to other families. Did I mention this hardcore momma has turned her frustration and anger into FIGHTING for others access to healthcare and running for U.S. Congress!?

Her website states …”To me, this story simply illustrates how necessary public assistance is while also demonstrating how deeply inadequate and alienating our current system and policies are. We must stop thinking of vital social programs as a “safety net” to catch us when we fall. Policies that meet everyone’s basic needs – a guaranteed livable wage, access to free public education and healthcare, affordable housing – need to be seen as the concrete foundation upon which our society is built that allows us all to grow, thrive, and reach our full potential as people, with equity and dignity.”

Rick Treviño joined in on the fun, He is running in Texas Congressional District 23! We were both Bernie Sanders National Delegates at the DNC –  he didn’t fold under establishment. I was proud!! He has always been a force in the San Antonio when it comes to standing up again inequality. Rick believes that healthcare is a right of all people and not a privilege. He believes America’s health care system is broken. Rick will fight for a Single-Payer Medicare for All system that will lower health care costs and provide better services to all.

Jim Hightower is an American, Texas treasure, columnist, progressive political activist, Bernie Sanders supporter , and author. He has been out working hard for Our Revolution!! I have ran into this guy on at least 12 occasions.

Twice elected Texas Agriculture Commissioner, Hightower believes that the true political spectrum is not right to left but top to bottom, and he has become a leading national voice for the 80 percent of the public who no longer find themselves within shouting distance of the Washington and Wall Street powers at the top.

Nina Turner speaks with such PASSION you feel it in your bones! I crawled out of bed after my surgery JUST TO SEE HER. I am pretty sure I just started crying while holding her hand. The last time I had seen her was when they kicked her out and ripped her credentials at the DNC and then we took to the streets!

Along with being the brand new president of Our Revolution – Nina Turner’s website states it best, “Most recently a progressive leader in the Ohio Senate, Nina Turner is a college professor, motivational speaker, frequent media commentator, and author. She has worked in leadership at the Ohio Democratic Party and as an elected member of the Cleveland City Council – both opportunities that demonstrated her ability to unify opposing ideologies in critical circumstances.”
