We focus on policies that will enable Texans of all backgrounds to thrive, and populations that are experiencing unfair barriers to opportunity.
Today, we prioritize policies that will measurably improve equity in and access to health care, food security, education, and financial security.
We expose unfair barriers faced by people of color, low-income Texans, immigrants, women, children, and other disenfranchised populations. We work alongside community leaders to advance equitable policy solutions.
As people and conditions change and evolve, we adjust the focus of our work to support our vision for Texas.
Access to quality, affordable health care for every Texan is at the core of our mission. We work to protect and improve access to high-quality public and private insurance, mental health care, and basic health needs for Texans of all backgrounds.
Texas is one of the hungriest states in the nation, but public policy can help change that. We are dedicated to achieving food security for every Texan.
One of the biggest challenges facing Texas families is the lack of career and college readiness for students. To increase post-secondary access and success, Texas must build a more durable pipeline across our educational and workforce systems to prepare Texans for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
Jobs & Financial Security
Many Texans experience poverty because their work pays too little to raise a family out of poverty. To ensure economic prosperity, Texas public policy must support workers, make employers pay livable wages, and prioritize health and wellness over profit alone.
Budget & Taxes
Texas needs a budget and tax system that is equitable, adequate, and responsive to our state’s growing population and needs. The ability to invest in public services that will build a more prosperous future for every Texan relies on the ability of our tax system to support those services.
Equity & Inequality
The wealth gaps in Texas keep poverty rates high, especially when the state doesn’t prioritize offering assistance to Texans in poverty or increasing equity for Texans of all backgrounds. Our public policies must guarantee equitable access to services that allow us all to thrive.
