We are the young people of Texas

Campus Chapters

We are on college and university campuses across the state.

We are active in every major metropolitan center in the state and in the fastest growing areas for under-represented communities of color.

Whether you are already politically active or have never even cast a ballot, Texas Rising will help you become an effective voice for change.
