Meet the #Houston19. All 19 black women who ran for various judicial seats in Harris County won their races last Tuesday, marking the single biggest victory for black women in the county's history. Beyond Houston, the election is reflective of an overall increase in women of color who are not just running, but winning local, state, and national races during the Trump administration. A similar thing happened during the 2016 election in Alabama-like Texas, a historically red state-when nine black women were elected as judges in Jefferson County. Wins like these are an important step in adding much-needed diversity to judicial seats across the country.
