The mission of the Texas Organizing Project is to bring together Black and Latino Texans so that together we can fight for real change by organizing our neighborhoods, investing our time and energy in causes relevant to our communities, and collectively taking ownership over TOP’s agenda, strategy and direction. With a seasoned and committed organizing staff, a diverse membership and leaders from all walks of life, TOP has already made a huge impact and is positioned to continue to grow. Our greatest strength is the more than 285,000 members and supporters who help lead our direct-action organizing, grassroots lobbying, and electoral organizing.
