We can absolutely affect change through advocacy. I donate money or invest my time, but that’s only going to go so far. With advocacy, it’s changing policies that can last for years and affect numerous people.

Creating Generational Impact

Improved Child Care Safety

Working with allies from across Texas, we advocated for multiple bills to drastically improve child care standards and reporting, which prevents abuse and neglect in these facilities.

Prevented Child Abuse

We spoke up for HOPES and Nurse-Family Partnership, programs that prevent child maltreatment, helping them secure $1.5 million and $2.9 million, respectively, for the next two years.

Advocated to Help Feed Seniors

We advocated to simplify the application and renewal process for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which 90% of eligible seniors say is too daunting to complete.

Reduced Evictions During COVID-19

We led community-wide efforts to keep thousands of families in their homes during the height of the pandemic.

View our recommendations for preventing evictions moving forward.
