Power Up Texas Fund

The Power Up Texas Fund is a 501(c)(4) organization. If you would like to make a 501(c)(3) donation please contact Jennifer Toth Clary at jennifer@workersdefense.org 

The Power Up Texas Fund is a project of Texas for All, a coalition of some of the most powerful base building and civil rights organizations in Texas: Texas Freedom Network, Workers Defense Action Fund, Texas Organizing Project, Texas Civil Rights Project, & Planned Parenthood Texas Votes. Our organizations all share a desire to dismantle systems of oppression to create a thriving democracy and a thriving society that puts people of color, immigrants, workers, and women at the center, to direct their own liberation. The core organizations are all rooted in historically marginalized communities and understand the issues they face. Together, we believe we can create a better Texas that works for all people.

 

The Power Up TX Fund was launched in February 2021 when Texas was paralyzed by record-breaking cold and winter conditions and a failure by state leadership to invest in the infrastructure Texas needs. Low-wage workers, immigrants, people of color, and in particular Black and Latino families that have been the hardest hit by the COVID 19 pandemic were also the most impacted by the power outages that left families shivering in their own homes for days, and resulted in hundreds of deaths. Some of our response efforts garnered global attention with a feature in Vogue magazine

 

Currently, we are on the frontlines of the fight for democracy in Texas, with our organizations and hundreds of others engaged in resisting the voter suppression measures proposed by Gov. Abbott and other state leaders.

 

The Texas for All coalition has joined forces with approximately 100 other progressive organizations across the state in our fight to protect Texas democracy. Read more about the expanded launch of Texas For All:
