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.

Trust. Respect. Access.

The Texas Freedom Network is working with a coalition of local progressive organizations on a long term campaign to promote policies that restore trust in Texans to make their own reproductive health care decisions, respect for health care professionals’ judgment about patient care and access to the full range of reproductive health care in Texas. Extremist politicians have gone too far in restricting reproductive health care, and today, a diverse group of Texans comes together to demand lawmakers take the first steps toward a better Texas.

You can get involved by joining the Texas Rising campaign. When you sign up we’ll keep you up to date on relevant bills that are moving in the Texas legislature and send you calls to action when we need you to use your voice.
