September 21, Fort Worth, TX—  With less than 50 days until election day, the creator and star of Ann, Holland Taylor, will headline Annie’s List 15th Anniversary celebration in Fort Worth on Monday, September 24th, from 6:00- 8:30 pm at Brik Venue.  Annie’s List, an organization focused on electing Democratic, pro-choice women to office in Texas, has endorsed a record-breaking 37 candidates across the state this cycle, three of which are from Tarrant County.  The three candidates in Tarrant County are Beverly Powell (SD-10), Rep. Nicole Collier (HD-95), and Devan Allen (Tarrant County Commissioner Court, Precinct 2).

For 15 years, Annie’s List has trained and supported thousands of progressive women who are both interested in and running for office in Texas.  It has focused on electing women to the Texas Legislature where, currently, 80% of legislators are men. More recently Annie’s List has started endorsing candidates for city and county races, because these offices are a great training ground and pipeline for future leadership roles.

“Annie’s List is seeing unprecedented opportunity up and down the ballot, including in several legislative seats currently under Republican control,” said Annie’s List Executive Director Royce Brooks. “We believe our candidates in Tarrant County and across the state will usher in the real, lasting change that Texans need, including better schools, quality affordable healthcare, and safety and opportunity for every community.”
