Big Election Energy

On today’s episode, we’ll be talking about the November 2020 election and the role that we as parents have in ensuring our future voters understand the importance of casting a ballot. We know that this is a Presidential election year and this year especially, there seems to be a lot at stake - like... everything is at stake! All of the plans and all of the “get out to vote” events have had to pivot in a big way. Our guest on today's episode is one we've had on before. She's full of great information on Texas politics and getting involved at a manageable level. We're excited to welcome back Becky Bullard!   Becky Bullard is a co-founder of Rouser—a Texas-based creative civic engagement company—and co-host of the podcast "The Rabble," which they say is like Texas politics but with funfetti. She left a successful career as an advertising copywriter and strategist for some of the world's biggest brands (like Dell and Chipotle) to form Rouser, a company with a mission to bring more Texans into the political process at every level. On "The Rabble" podcast, Becky and her co-host Ashley Cheng are currently focused on helping people understand how important the Texas House is, as well as giving people one actionable thing to do each day leading up to the 2020 election. Growing up as a devout Christian conservative whose views evolved over time to the complete opposite end of the spectrum, Becky brings a unique perspective to Texas politics.   Resources: The Rabble Podcast The Rabble on IG Becky's IG The Pushback (film) Cassandra Speaks (book) by Elizabeth Lesser Take the Other Out to Lunch - TED Talk by Elizabeth Lesser Becky's Season 2 Episode: Political Activism as Parents (May 2019)
