What is Texas Rising?

Texas Rising is a movement of young, diverse, politically engaged Texans working to leverage our power through community organizing, electoral politics, and public policy advocacy.

As 25% of the electorate, we're organizing to hold our public officials accountable to all Texans, not special interests and the voices of intolerance and division.

Texas Rising is advocating for sound public policies that address reproductive rights, voter suppression, and LGBTQ equality.

Together we can build a better Texas. Join us.
