Describe Every Texan
Every Texan believes that social justice requires public policy. Since its founding in 1985, Every Texan (formerly the Center for Public Policy Priorities) has leveraged public policy to expand opportunity and equity for Texans of all backgrounds. Every Texan is an independent nonprofit organization that researches, analyzes, and advocates for public policies to achieve equitable access to quality health care, food security, education, and good jobs. Our bold, research-driven legislative priorities dare Texas leaders to make Texas the best state for hard-working people and their families.
Our Panel Equity Policy
Every Texan staff prioritizes invitations for speaking engagements that are intentionally curated to uplift BIPOC voices and perspectives, embrace panelists for their expertise and their identities, and are inclusive of our state’s vast array of socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, disabilities, and health conditions.
