Who We Are: Texas Organizing Project (TOP) is a Texas-based, non-profit organization promoting social and economic equality for low to moderate income Texans through community and electoral organizing in Harris, Dallas and Bexar Counties. TOP provides a unique opportunity to recruit and develop grassroots leaders, build a membership base and implement effective electoral organizing strategies. TOP’s work impacts choices power brokers make on quality of life issues such as living wage jobs, community schools, criminal justice reform, health care access, comprehensive immigration reform, and creating neighborhoods of opportunity for all. We are proud to say that TOP has a proven track record of running campaigns that address these issues and believe that we must build power through community organizing, partnering with other progressive organizations and labor unions, and civic engagement to make systemic change.
