Information & Resources

Blue Horizon Texas provides information and resources on running for office, and supporting those running for office, in rural and red districts across Texas. We have resources for candidates and volunteers.

Public Events

We offer webinars and online workshops open to the public. Please see our Events page for information on coming events.

Private Online Community

For candidates and volunteers in target races, we also provide access to our private, secure online community and resource library. We vet candidates and volunteers carefully. The vetting process can take up to 1-2 weeks, during which time, we may reach out to you for additional information by email or phone. Please respond promptly to follow-up inquiries to expedite the process.
