ABOUT TEXAS FOR ALL
The Texas for All coalition works together across race, place, and gender to unite causes and mount a powerful opposition to extremists that cruelly target the rights and the lives of Texans. We are a strategic alignment of groups with a rich history of deeply rooted organizing in communities all across the state.
TX4All Partners have worked together at different junctures over the years to protect the civil rights of underrepresented Texans, pass local measures like paid-sick leave, and mobilize our respective members and base to take action at the ballot box. Our organizational partners have come together in this critical moment in alignment around a vision towards transformation politics to shift economic and governing power toward racial justice.
Our work is the development and expansion of permanent political and electoral infrastructure, a race-forward narrative that disrupts power structures grounded and steeped in white supremacy, and cross-organizational coordination amongst key stakeholders who agree to support coordinated investments and strategies that advance the social welfare of underrepresented communities in Texas – Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, People with Disabilities, women, youth, queer, gender diverse, and working-class people. These coordinated efforts engage Texans through issues and electoral advocacy.
The Texas for All Table is made up of 11 organizations dedicated to the advancement of civil rights and democracy such as Texas Freedom Network, Texas Organizing Project, Texas Civil Rights Project, Planned Parenthood Texas Votes, and Workers Defense Action Fund. Our organizational partners carry out work encompassing voting rights, abortion access, equality, criminal justice, education, labor, environmental and climate justice.
