Social Innovators: Wendy Davis | Deeds Not Words

Wendy Davis, former Texas State Senator and Founder of Deeds Not Words, knows how to get things done! Her organization, Deeds Not Words, serves to help young women become engaged in the political process.

This year, they worked with a group of high school students in Austin and Dallas to pass a bill requiring preventative education related to sex and human trafficking in schools. Armed with guidance from Deeds Not Words and statistical information from Allies Against Slavery, the students were involved in every step of the legislative process. They authored letters and provided testimonials in the Texas State Senate to prove their case and pass the bill! Watch the video below for more information on this incredible story.
