About Us

The Texas Civil Rights Project uses legal advocacy to empower Texas communities and create policy change.

 

In its twenty-five year history, TCRP has brought thousands of strategic lawsuits, defending voting rights, fighting institutional discrimination and reforming systems of criminal justice. Our efforts have helped countless low-income and otherwise marginalized Texans — and have widely advanced equality and justice.

 

Today — with dozens of high-caliber attorneys and professionals in Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Houston and the Rio Grande Valley and an extensive network of pro bono counsel and community allies —TCRP is among the most influential civil rights organizations in the Lone Star State.
