- Who we are
- Our work
- Get involved
TCRP has long been recognized by our willingness to stand up for the underdog against the State of Texas and other powerful interests. Our track record of bold, creative litigation has also been recognized; for instance, in 2016, we made national headlines with our successful lawsuit against Texas for refusing to provide birth certificates to babies born in Texas to undocumented mothers. Finally, and just as important, we are uniquely homegrown and rooted in Texas. That means we are entirely focused on advancing equality and justice in our own backyard.
We are Texas lawyers for Texas communities, boldly serving the movement for equality and justice in and out of the courts. We use our tools of litigation and legal advocacy to protect and advance the civil rights of everyone in Texas and we partner with communities across the state to serve the rising movement for social justice. We undertake our work with a vision of a Texas in which all communities can thrive with dignity, justice and without fear.
TCRP’s program areas address some of the most pressing social justice problems in Texas — protecting voting rights, advancing racial and economic justice, and reforming our broken criminal justice system. Each program is led by an experienced director who works closely with our other talented attorneys and staff. In 2017, along side you, we fought back against mean-spirited and dangerous attacks against the most vulnerable Texans while pushing forward a progressive vision to transform our state.
