Your Chance to Win Tickets to TEDxMcAllen 2015! Play Along at Home!
Over the past few weeks we have been taking photographs of our metallic red “X” all across the McAllen area, showing off some of the things that we think define our area.

#Repost @valleyite with @repostapp. ・・・ McAllen is paving the way for personal transportation in South Texas, joining the ranks of major metro areas like Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio and Houston as cities with the B-Cycle bike share program. The creative wheels will be in motion @tedxmcallen …What will be the next game changer? #tedxmcallen #mcallen #valleyite #visitmcallen #tedtalks #x #bcycle #bike
The the streets at ground zero for the immigration crisis in front of Sacred Heart Church:
#Repost @valleyite ・・・ In July 2014, McAllen garnered national attention for its humanitarian efforts as an influx of immigrants crossed the U.S./Mexico border.

Our opinion matters, and @tedxmcallen will break borders and generate thought about this highly-controversial topic. #tedxmcallen #valleyite #tedtalks #tedx #x #mcallen #immigration #immigrationreform A photo posted by TEDxMcAllen (@tedxmcallen) on
