Many members of our Texas community face unfair barriers to attaining a secure, healthy life. Help us narrow the gaps and give our children and grandchildren security and happiness by taking action.

Every Texan could not do the groundbreaking work we do without the support of our community. By partnering with us through donations, events, and advocacy, you personally contribute to improving the lives of every Texan. As an independent nonprofit public policy organization, we work at the local, state, and federal level to ensure health and wellness, expand economic opportunity, and invest in our great state.

Your continued support will provide vital capacity for Every Texan to achieve our goals. Thank you for sharing our passion for making Texas the best it can be.

Current Projects

We focus on policies that will enable Texans of all backgrounds to thrive.

We are constantly expanding our capabilities to support our partners in the advocacy community, using more digital tools to activate Texans from all backgrounds to participate in the policymaking process.

It will take all of us, working together, to make this a state where people from all backgrounds can thrive.

We are building a coalition around a comprehensive, people-centered policy roadmap for our state to amplify the policy issues Texans want to see. The People’s Budget is a multi-year, multi-phase strategy that thinks beyond legislative advocacy, focusing instead on investments in our community. We’ve fought for Texans — now we fight alongside them.

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) has brought billions of dollars to our state to help Texans recover from the pandemic. This session, the Texas Legislature is responsible for allocating some of these funds. This is an opportunity for Texas legislators to invest in an equitable recovery plan for Texans of all backgrounds. In order to know what everyday Texans need to recover and thrive, legislators need to hear from you. We need your voice!

Texas can’t recover if Texans aren’t covered! Expanding Medicaid for Texans who can’t afford insurance  could help over 2 million Texans get coverage, save rural hospitals, and protect the health of our communities. Join the #SickOfItTX campaign to be part of the movement for Medicaid expansion and health care access in Texas!

Even amid a pandemic, there are still 12 states that haven’t expanded Medicaid, leaving 2.2 million Americans without any realistic access to basic, life-saving health care coverage.

The time is NOW for Congress and the Biden Administration to create a federal solution. Help us urge Congress to act NOW. Take action below!

While safe access to the capitol and testifying at hearings is more challenging this session, Every Texan is committed to amplifying the voices of Texans from around the state. Record a short video and tell us your story today!

At the Texas Legislature

We love Texas and believe it can be the best state in the United States, but we are falling short in many ways. We believe government has an important role to play in crafting public policy that improves people’s lives. Every Texan is here to support data-driven policymaking that improves the lives of Texans of all backgrounds. City officials, county judges and state lawmakers rely on Every Texan for clear, accurate numbers and solutions as they tackle challenges in our communities.


Join us in making a Texas where everyone is healthy, well-educated, and financially secure. Together, we create public policy solutions to achieve our vision. Social justice requires public policy and you
