Transcript PLAYING PARTY POLITICS (a special thanks to Texas Abortion Rights Action League. Support TARAL with a minimum of $15 membership dues. Mail to TARAL 1200 Guadalupe Austin Texas 78701) As tales of political atrocity and repression hail from all over the world, this November in Texas v/e face the opportunity to fully participate in the political process and to influence the programs that directly affect us. It will take a little extra effort on election day, but if you make that effort not only v/ill you stretch the impact of your vote but you'll meet some interesting people and have a uniquely fun time.

Resolutions are introduced to be recommended for inclusion in the party platform. Resolutions must be passed by a majority vote at the Convention.
