Welcome to the Building Power to Win Campaign!
The Sierra Club is committed to a long-range campaign alongside our community partners to wrestle power away from those who wield it for the few and return it to everyday working Texans. We know we can't make progress on many state legislative issues in one session or even two. It will take several cycles to build grassroots power strong enough to pass policies that work for the people. Dive in to the issues below, learn about who represents you, and sign up to get involved!
