2023 Mothers Report Card

Mothers Against Greg Abbott painstakingly went through the voting records of the last year to determine how our Texas elected officials voted on issues such as Women’s Health, LGBTQ+, Gun Safety, Border, Voting Rights, Energy & the Environment, and Public Education. We then graded them based on those votes.

We also provide a handy list of their top 10 funders as well as a short set of notes and recommendations. Please use these and share them widely with your friends and family. Together we can become informed and make a Texas government that works for all of us.
