Our County

With more than 4.5 million residents, Harris County, Texas, is the third most populous county in the United States. Our county seat, Houston, is the fourth largest and most diverse city in the nation. The people of Harris County speak more than 145 different languages and come from every corner of the globe. We are an international hub for trade, industry, innovation and the arts, and although we may live in a red state (for now), Harris County is decidedly blue.

Our Party

The Harris County Democratic Party is dedicated to the ideal that everyone deserves an equal shot at life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, regardless of where they come from. We work hard to elect qualified, principled and effective Democratic candidates who give the people of Harris County a voice in government calling for economic, social and environmental justice. Join the Party in our fight for a society that works for all of us.

Take Action

To build on the progressive gains we’ve made in Harris County, we need you. We need you to run for municipal, state and national elected offices. Don’t want to be a candidate? No problem. Volunteers are central to the work we do at the Harris County Democratic Party. Sign up to volunteer here. You also can join one of the many area Democratic clubs and organizations, and if you are able, please consider supporting the Party’s efforts by donating.

Town Talk: Being a Transgender & Nonbinary Ally

Event Description:

In honor of LGBTQIA+ pride, our Town Talk this month will focus on how to be an ally to the transgender and nonbinary community. Lou Weaver, queer transman & transgender programs coordinator for Equality Texas, will moderate a panel discussion with members of the transgender and nonbinary community, (panelists TBA). Over the course of the evening, Lou will explore the simple language and terminology we can use as allies, when talking about the transgender and nonbinary community.

Join us afterwards for one of the best drag shows in town and help us raise a few dollars for a local LGBTQIA+ youth charity. Food will be available to purchase off the Hamburger Mary’s menu with a cash bar.
