Our Testimony at the Texas Legislature

Social Justice Requires Public Policy.

We envision a Texas where people of all backgrounds can fulfill their potential and contribute to our community.

Unfortunately, too many Texans can’t access the conditions they need to thrive — good health care, education, and jobs.

One of the most effective ways to make sure every Texan has access to these conditions is to strengthen public policy. And that’s where we focus our work: We strengthen public policy to expand opportunity and equity for every Texan.
