To help defeat an upheaval of discriminatory anti-LGBTQ legislation in Texas, HRC is opening field offices across the Lone Star State.
HRC has a team of five field staff across the Lone Star State to implement HRC’s efforts during the 2017 legislative session. Based in Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, our team of battle-tested organizers are already hard at work. Each has Texas roots and has local campaign experience.
"This is a significant investment that we'll be making here in the state," HRC President Chad Griffin told The Texas Tribune. "There's an estimated nearly 800,000 LGBTQ eligible voters in this state ... and they are ready to be organized and activated."
HRC is proud to be in coalition with Equality Texas, ACLU of Texas, the Texas Freedom Network and the Transgender Education Network of Texas to defeat legislation that threatens the rights of LGBTQ Texans and their families. We will continue to be on the ground until the end of the session, engaging HRC members, supporters, and allies to fight back against anti-LGBTQ legislation.
