We demand access to the PUC hearings.

BUILDING OUR POWER
Texas Rising is a campaign developed by the Texas Freedom Network (TFN) to uplift the voices of the rising electorate, 18-29 year olds, across the state.
Over the last decade, Texas has seen a strong shift towards an out of touch, radical right political agenda. This agenda has launched attacks on reproductive rights, LGBTQ equality, and public education, among others.
Through linking progressive issue advocacy to civic engagement organizing, we believe that young people can mobilize a new generation of informed and motivated voters eager to participate in the democratic process.
Texas Rising 101:
We’ve continued to organize our student communities at every moment necessary throughout the pandemic, and we aren’t stopping anytime soon. Here are a few ways to connect with Texas Rising at your college or university!
Texas Rising is the leading organization for young progressives in Texas who want to make our state as progressive as we know it can be.
Whether in-person or virtual, Texans are heading back to school - and you can bet that our chapters will be there ready to connect with and organize young people at colleges and universities throughout the state.
