About Us

Texas Fair Share is a state-based grassroots field and advocacy organization, fighting for economic fairness in America.

Texas Fair Share works to provide every American with a fair shot at a good job, a secure future, and a strong voice in our democracy. We work to build community support to stand up to those who put the interests of corporations and the 2% over the needs of the middle class.

Texas Fair Share is launching our campaign to put America back to work. We want to see our schools, roads and bridges rebuilt; our teachers, firefighters and police put back to work. We can afford to do this by working with our community to close massive corporate tax loopholes and end outdated subsidies to oil and drug companies.

Together, we will make a difference.

Texas Fair Share is currently hiring interns!
