Democracy for America

“Derrick Crowe’s campaign for Congress shows that standing up for American values like liberty and justice for all leads directly to policies like climate change action, Medicare For All, and tuition-free college. He’s showing Democrats that the path to victory in Texas isn’t in chasing Republican votes, but in championing a bold, progressive vision for the future." -- Jim Dean, DFA Chair


Bill McKibben

Author, environmentalist, founder of 350.org

"Derrick Crowe has long been active in the fight for a working environmental future, and now it's very good to see him enter the political arena.

"We badly need people like him who are willing to stand up to climate denial and help us forge a clean and prosperous future."


Blue America

"[Derrick] has a visceral understanding of progressive issues and appears to be someone who will be more than just a “good vote” in Congress, but someone– like Pramila Jayapal, Ted Lieu and Ro Khanna - who can come forward as a natural thought leader." 


Mark McKim

"Derrick has shown that he is committed to advocating policies that promote environmental, social, racial and economic justice. We need more politicians who are willing to speak truth to power and recognize Democrats must challenge the corporate, neoliberal power structure. Derrick is doing this and has even faced arrest for protesting the destruction of the ACA and while being arrested advocated for universal health coverage. We need more people like Derrick to serve in Congress and fight for radical progressive values." 

Sharon Gillespie

"Derrick is a true progressive candidate who will fight for ordinary people. He refuses to accept corporate PAC money, which will keep him free from undue influence. He has the experience, the dedication, and the integrity required to be an effective public servant."

Gilbert Starkey

Co-founder, 350 Austin

"Derrick Crowe is a highly intelligent, incisive, articulate defender of the American citizenry, not corporate profits, and is committed to stopping climate change in the short time we have left. I wholeheartedly support his candidacy!"

"The imposing climate crisis cannot wait any longer for action."

Betty Vance

"I believe our best chance of removing Lamar Smith is Derrick Crowe. Support him now." 

Kate Mathis

"Derrick Crowe has a deep understanding of science as it relates to our planet's health and well being. This is in stark contrast to the incumbent Lamar Smith who works for the oil and gas industry. Derrick is able to envision and think long-term, also lacking in his opponent Lamar Smith. He's very bright, articulate, and dedicated to making the world a better place. What an improvement he will be!"
