Dear Virginia,

Watching Texas State Senator Wendy Davis stand up -- literally -- to right-wing politicians who wanted to take health care decisions out of women’s hands was incredibly inspiring.

She spent nearly 13 straight hours standing in her now famous sneakers, telling the truth about what that bill would do to women and families in Texas.

That’s why we were all proud to #standwithwendy online -- and it’s why I’m going to be proud to stand with Wendy in real life when a bunch of my colleagues and I get together to thank her in person later this week.

Will you join us? You don’t even need pink shoes to stand with Wendy Davis. You just need to click here to help say “THANK YOU!”

Even before her famous stand, Wendy was a hero. A single mother who worked hard to put herself through college -- becoming the first in her family to graduate (and doing so first in her class!) -- before going on to earn a law degree from Harvard, she brings real-life experience to her job fighting for Texas families.

And even with the fight over that one bill behind us, Wendy’s exactly the kind of person we need in elected office, especially in states like Texas where all too often we only hear about radical conservative politicians.

That’s why I’m so excited to stand with Wendy -- although, with all the other Senators joining me to thank her for her work, it could get crowded.

But there’s still room for you. Join me in thanking Wendy Davis by clicking here to sign our card.

Thanks for helping me stand with Wendy.


P.S.: A bunch of us Senators are saying “thank you” to Wendy by helping her continue her great work for Texas families. We’d love if you’d join us: Click here to thank Wendy Davis!
