Stephenville Forum Features Great Women Running To Change Texas Political Landscape

As part of our commitment to support strong women who can shake up the political landscape in the age of Trump, we’re highlighting content of two remarkable Democratic candidates running in Texas.

Pictured below from a 9/16 Erath County Candidate Forum held at the courthouse in Stephenville, TX are: retired U.S. Air Force Colonel Kim Olson, who is running for Texas Commissioner of Agriculture; and Julie Oliver, an Austin attorney running on a powerful personal story to serve the TX-25th Congressional District as its Representative.

Back in June, we first met Kim following a barnstorming speech at the Texas Democratic Party’s Convention in Fort Worth.  She’s running against GOP incumbent Ag Commissioner Sid Miller – one of Texas’ most Trumpean elected officials and someone routinely pushing divisive narratives similar to the President’s.  While Olson certainly faces an uphill battle Continue reading “Stephenville Forum Features Great Women Running To Change Texas Political Landscape”

Julie Oliver at Democracy After Dark – Austin, TX

Poli Pix Co. recently ran a contest on its social media channels (@PoliPixCo) to volunteer some event photography to a candidate or party office, continuing our project to enhance Democratic narratives around the Southwest.

Thanks to some tremendous volunteers and supporters, Julie Oliver received the most submissions! Oliver is a tremendous candidate with a compelling personal story and comes equipped with over 20 years of experience in healthcare finance and as an attorney. Poli Pix was thrilled to volunteer a little bit of our time at this event  – Democracy After Dark at Austin’s Kerbey Lane Cafe – and at another a few days later.

Other candidates in attendance pictured are Democratic congressional candidate for TX-21 Joseph Kosper and candidate for Austin City Council, District 9, Danielle Skidmore.

 

Gina Ortiz-Jones Meets & Greets in Helotes, TX

Poli Pix ventured out to TX-23 to support Will Hurd’s Democratic challenger, Gina Ortiz-Jones with some event photography during a supporter event at Villareal Icehouse in Helotes, TX.

Gina has an incredible story, being a first-generation American born to immigrant parents and a former intelligence officer and Obama administration official.

Here are a few of the images we provided to her campaign team:

 

Rise Up For Roe – Austin, TX

Poli Pix joined women’s choice advocates in Austin as part of NARAL & Planned Parenthood’s 10 city-tour to focus attention on stopping the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

Among the participants were: Wendy Davis, former State Senator and Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate; Brittany Packnett, a firebrand civil rights activist; and Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer at Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood Action Fund; and others.

Here are a few of shots from the event:

Deb Haaland & DPNM Labor Caucus in Albuquerque, NM

A little over a week ago, Poli Pix headed to Albuquerque to offer some quality images to the Deb Haaland for Congress campaign.

We are excited by her candidacy because when she’s elected by the people of New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District, she’ll be the first Native American woman ever sent to the U.S. House.

Our nation’s Congress has never had a voice like hers, and we were honored to be able to help define that voice through the following photos:

 

Still F*cking Standing w/Wendy Davis & Deeds Not Words

Five years ago, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis took a stand into history with an historic 13-hour filibuster in support of women’s reproductive choice throughout Texas. ‘The People’s Filibuster’ propelled her and campaign for Governor of Texas a year later. Poli Pix was honored to contribute to this important anniversary celebration in Fort Worth, hosted by Davis’ nonprofit, Deeds Not Words.

These photos make-up roughly 1/3 of the total gallery, soon available on it’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/deedsnotwords/

 

Year of the Woman in full-swing at NM’s Democratic Party Unity Breakfast

Tuesday’s elections in New Mexico brought a well-earned primary win for Deb Haaland, an organizer and former Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair running for the U.S. House in NM-01. When she wins in November, she’ll be the first Native American woman sent to Congress in our nation’s history.

Haaland joined other Democrats including Michelle Lujan Grisham – the outgoing CD-1 U.S. Rep and Democratic Party’s gubernatorial nominee – at the traditional DPNM Unity Breakfast on Wednesday morning, held at Barelas Coffee House in southeast Albuquerque.
