The fact of the matter is that our state is changing. There is a powerful rising movement for equality, justice, and human dignity that is transforming Texas. And people in power are afraid — meaning they will do everything they can to throw up barriers for organizations and people working to advance civil rights in our state.
That’s why, as lawmakers and state officials become increasingly hostile to civil rights and afraid of losing their own positions, we have been victim to our own success. Recently, our efforts to create lasting change sparked a backlash, leading to the abrupt loss of roughly $900,000 as of September 1st. TCRP had been receiving this funding since 1991.
The road to change Texas is a long and difficult journey. It will require a strong and resilient movement to represent the needs of the most vulnerable Texans. Which is why we are asking you to join the Fight for Rights Campaign, our new, broad effort to replace the lost funding and sustain our work for years to come.
