Equity & Inequality

At Every Texan, we envision a Texas where people of all backgrounds can contribute to and share in the prosperity of our state. One of the most effective ways to make sure every Texan has access to these conditions is to strengthen public policy. 

In Texas, opportunity isn’t the same for everyone. People are working hard to support their families and contribute to our state, but limited access to affordable health care, a quality education, and good jobs holds them back. We’re trying to fix that through public policy.

People of Color & Race Equity

Every Texan deserves the chance to compete and succeed in life. But historical policies have created barriers for people based on their race or ethnicity.

Immigrants

Texas has a strong tradition of embracing immigrant culture, and immigrants have long played a leading role in our state’s economic success.

Women & Gender Equality

Even when women—especially women of color—work hard, have higher educational attainment, and get a good job, there are still vast differences in pay and the ability to build long-term economic security.

Children

When Texas children are safe, healthy, and educated, Texas thrives. Ensuring that kids do well today ensures that we all do well tomorrow.

Low-Income Texans

For too many Texas households, working a full-time job is no longer enough to support a family and provide security in retirement.
