About TOP

Danny_C_6.jpgThe Texas Organizing Project (TOP) works to improve the lives of low-income and working class Texas families through community organizing, and civic and electoral engagement. TOP is a membership-based organization that conducts direct action organizing, grassroots lobbying and electoral organizing led by working families in Texas.

In addition, we provide training, leadership development, and public education, putting community organizers on the ground in working communities throughout the state. These organizers identify issues of common concern; recruit, develop and train leaders; and build partnerships with community, labor and policy groups to strengthen neighborhoods across the state of Texas.

With every campaign we run, every issue we fight for and every neighborhood we organize, we focus on creating effective ways to ensure that voices of low income and minority communities are not only heard, but that they have sufficient power to advance their issues.

By mobilizing neighborhoods into public issue-based campaigns and linking those issues to the importance of voting, we have been able to build an infrastructure of grassroots community leaders and organizers to win tangible results and increase voter participation.

If you would like more information, please visit or contact any of our offices in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio or the Rio Grande Valley.
