ABOUT THE TEXAS CIVIL RIGHTS PROJECT

At TCRP, we are Texas lawyers for Texas communities. We use our unique community lawyering

model to empower Texas communities and create the policy changes necessary for a fairer, more just Texas. In our 30+ year history, we have brought thousands of strategic lawsuits, defending voting rights, reforming systems of criminal (in)justice, and fighting for the rights of immigrant families and those in our borderland communities. Our efforts have helped countless low-income and otherwise marginalized Texans and have widely advanced equality and justice. Today — with dozens of high- caliber attorneys and professionals around the state and an extensive network of pro bono counsel and community allies —TCRP is among the most influential civil rights organizations in Texas.


TCRP comprises three regional offices across Texas with over 40 employees and an annual budget

of over $7 million dollars. TCRP currently operates under a hybrid work policy, allowing remote

work from anywhere in Texas and requiring travel and in-person attendance for specified work

activities. The in-person activities are typically based out of any of the Texas Civil Rights Projects

locations: Alamo (in the Rio Grande Valley), Austin, and Houston. We are proud of our work,

welcome innovative thinkers, and offer flexibility to different people’s styles and strengths. Learn

THE ADVOCACY DEPARTMENT

Our new Advocacy Department will lead our outreach campaigns at TCRP to better support our

legal teams in our mission of community lawyering. The department will look at the needs of the progressive infrastructure in the state and create campaigns that bring the expertise of TCRP to our

partner organizations. The department will create pathways to help communities fight back against

injustice in partnership with TCRP. This department will help train the next generation of civil rights

leaders in Texas.

The Advocacy Department has two major campaigns that TCRP spearheads. In even years, our

Election Protection program, a program that ensures fair and safe elections. In odd years, a

Legislative Session campaign would include working in collaboration with our policy team to create

lobby days, partner briefings, and work with communities and partners to help train volunteers.


THE ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF ADVOCACY ROLE

TCRP’s Associate Director of Advocacy will work closely with our outreach and advocacy staff to

create a new department to ensure that TCRP fights for immigration reform, a just criminal legal

system, and the protection and expansion of voting rights through campaigns and coalitions in

Texas. The Associate Director of Advocacy will foster a department of collaboration and innovation

to ensure TCRP’s theory of change using the principles of community lawyering.
