Flipping the House with Akilah Bacy
Updated: Aug 18
Texas Family Project is proud to announce our endorsement and selection of Akilah Bacy, who is running for Representative of HD 138, as our latest winner of our Find the Nine Campaign. We believe that Flipping the Texas House WILL impact Texans lives for the next 10 years. It is one of the most important things we can accomplish in 2020! We are excited to see Akilah elected and to watch what she can accomplish in Austin.
Akilah Bacy is a civil rights attorney and former Harris County prosecutor. In the DA's office, she prosecuted child sexual abusers and domestic abusers. Now she helps workers fight discrimination in the workplace.
Akilah teaches English as a second language and civil rights courses, and she is working to identify and help victims of human trafficking.
In Austin, she'll work with both parties to get things done. She will work to rein in healthcare and prescription drug costs, invest in Houston public schools, help small businesses, and strengthen infrastructure to prevent flooding.
The Democrat who ran in 2018 for Texas State House District 138 lost by only 47 votes and now the incumbent isn't running for re-election because he's scared. This seat is the top-target to flip from Red to Blue and Akilah Bacy is ready to win in November.
