Once again Gov. Rick Perry and Lt. Governor David Dewhurst are attacking the constitutional rights of women in Texas. On Tuesday, Sen. Wendy Davis and the Senate Democrats stood together to stop harmful legislation from passing in the Texas Senate.

Thanks to your voice and the voices of thousands, women in Texas won!

Now we must stand together again to demand justice for all women in Texas. Join us Monday, July 1st at 12 noon at the Texas Capitol to have your voice heard! Stand with us, grab your orange gear and join us in Austin.

______

Take action Monday at the Capitol! After the rally we will have many opportunities to keep standing with Texas women and Sen. Davis. See how you can take action below:

2PM – 5PM – Share Your Story! Record a video testimonial or take a photo showing your support.

2PM – Senate Convenes - Senate Gallery, 3rd floor

2PM - 3PM - Workshop presentations on how to engage your community, civic participation and women's rights.

2PM – 3PM - Reproductive Justice and Women’s Health presentations.

2:30PM – Become a voter registrar! Voter Deputization.

3:30PM – “Staying Engaged: What’s next?" Take action at the capitol: write a letter to your Representative or Senator; write a letter to the editor; sign a thank you card for women’s health champions; sign up and learn more about organizing in-district events, phone banks and house parties.

3:30PM – Become a voter registrar! Voter Deputization.

12. Geo-Tagged Twitter Map of #StandWithWendy Shows Texas Senator Wasn’t a Lone Star

 

Geo-Tagged Twitter Map of #StandWithWendy Shows Texas Senator Wasn’t a Lone Star
http://www.wired.com/underwire/2013/06/twitter-geography-wendy-davis/

In the social media age, there’s no such thing as local politics anymore. Even a law that would only affect one state or county or city can easily become a meme online and put a spotlight on an issue that people might care passionately about even if it’s not in their backyard. Case in point: #StandWithWendy.

.... The map above, created by the academic research group Floating Sheep, shows that while the volume of Twitter activity for #StandWithWendy was—naturally—greatest in Texas itself (nearly 29 percent of all tweets), there was also quite a bit of chatter coming out of places like New York state (8 percent), California (12 percent) and even places like Illinois (4 percent). The most interesting thing about the data, Floating Sheep’s founder and “chief shepherd” Matthew Zook told Wired is “the way that social media can make a relatively local concern (i.e. state-level legislature) and quickly make it into a national event.”

Following Sen. Davis’ filibuster meme images like this mash-up of the state senator and one of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons from Game of Thrones began popping up on social media. Image via Tumblr

To try to account for differences in population by state and normal tweet output for a geographic region, Floating Sheep researchers normalized the data using its proprietary Dolly system to make sure certain states weren’t showing higher levels of support simply because they have more people or tend to tweet a lot. What they found showed that while Texas still lead the pack, states like Oregon and Montana had more #StandWithWendy tweets than the national average .........
