Help build support for award winning investigative journalism
and progressive community building!

The 10th annual Rabble-Rouser Roundup & Fat Cat Schmoozefest needs you!

Sign up for tickets and sponsorships now! See below for details on giving levels.

 The Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center

Keynote talk by Jim Hightower

Recent developments in journalism have shown that the Free Press is critically important to a functioning democracy—but it is not free!

With your help we will continue to deliver top-notch investigative journalism and build progressive infrastructure in Texas. The TDF has revamped its web site, launched new media initiatives and written stories that have won awards and garnered national attention. With this year’s Rabble Rouser event, we will recognize community activists from throughout the state and we will launch outreach to the next generation of progressive leaders in Texas.

Your support makes it possible. Many levels are available and all are given grateful recognition. Sponsor the Rabble Rouser, support investigative journalism and progressive community engagement in Texas and receive these benefits:
