For over 30 years the Texas Civil Rights Project (TCRP) has been effective in creating access to social and economic change by implementing the philosophy that community education and organizing go hand-in-hand with court action to solidify legal and systemic changes. TCRP serves the community’s large number of immigrant and low-income population.

TCRP has been extremely successful in creating a holistic approach by providing free legal assistance and collaborating with area organizations. We have represented low-income persons in cases against state, local, and federal police agencies, agricultural operators, unscrupulous employers who prey on vulnerable populations, and those discriminating against persons with disabilities.
The Texas Civil Rights Project has many different opportunities for volunteers, who have a passion for social justice and human rights. Volunteer opportunities do not require you to be in Texas and can be conducted via phone calls, conference calls and email, for example: translation, research, fund raising, and creating materials. Because of our limited funding and budget, we do not offer compensation.
