DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS

Washington DC, and Austin are attempting to legislate against us & WE Must Resist. Speak up in support of rights for LGBT, Women, Immigrants, Black Lives, Working Poor, the Environment, & Education 

American Civil Liberties Union of Texas continues our work to secure and protect civil rights for Texans throughout the state. We fight for smart criminal justice reforms,  unconstitutionally detained immigrants, racial equality, LGBT equality, students’ rights, and women’s rights.

Battleground Texas  is focused on expanding the electorate by registering more voters – and, as importantly, mobilizing those Texans who are already registered but who have not been engaged in the democratic process. 

Equality Texas  is the largest statewide organization dedicated solely to securing full equality for LGBTQ Texans through political action, education, community organizing, and collaboration.

North Dallas Texas Democratic Women  Since 2002, NDTDW has been one of the leading Democratic clubs in Dallas, and most years, the largest chapter of the Texas Democratic Women. Our members have played key roles in electing Democrats, especially Democratic Women, in Dallas County. 

Progress Texas  is a public relations shop promoting progressive ideals while also pushing back on bad policies and bad behavior from the right wing.

Focus issues: affordable health care, voting rights, LGBTQ rights, abortion access, fighting income inequality, marijuana policy reform, and accountability in government.

Texas Freedom Network TFN acts as the state’s watchdog for monitoring far-right issues, organizations, money and leaders. The organization has been instrumental in defeating initiatives backed by the religious right in Texas, including private school vouchers and textbook censorship at the State Board of Education.
