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.

No Houstonian should be discriminated against based on race, age, military status, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Join a critical mass of Houstonians who are committing to vote for Proposition 1 (the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance) by signing the pledge:

As a voter in Houston, I pledge to vote “Yes” on Proposition 1 to uphold Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) this November. HERO protects us all from unfair discrimination and sends the message that we are a modern, welcoming city.

In the most diverse city in America, I believe that everyone should be treated fairly, no matter who they are. That’s a core value Houstonians share.
