Meet Gina Ortiz Jones and Help Flip Texas 23rd!

  • 1548 Beacon Street Newton, MA 02468 (map)

Gina is running to flip the most competitive House seat in Texas, now held by GOP incumbent Will Hurd. After graduating from Boston University, Gina entered the Air Force as an intelligence officer, where she deployed to Iraq, serving under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. In the years since, she built a career in national security, intelligence, and defense and served as Senior Advisor for Trade Enforcement under President Obama.

Texas' 23rd Congressional District shares a long border with Mexico and has a population that is 70% Hispanic. It is at the epicenter of issues around immigration and family separation at the border.

The recommended amount to attend is $100, but please give what you can and join us. Veterans, students and LGBTQ youth are especially welcome!
