The US Supreme Court handed a big loss to women trying to get medically accurate information on all their reproductive health care options. In Texas, fake clinics outnumber real abortion clinics by a huge margin. And the lies don’t stop there.
Five years after the historic People’s Filibuster, the reproductive health, rights, and justice movement in Texas is taking the fight to anti-abortion politicians with a groundbreaking legal challenge - the People’s Lawsuit.
The Court is set to decide some really important cases by the end of June — cases covering a lot of issues that matter to and impact the lives of Texans, from LGBTQ equality and immigration to workers’, voting, and abortion rights.
Anti-abortion politicians' end goal is clear: to overturn Roe v. Wade and ban abortion state-by-state and method-by-method. This threat to our reproductive freedom is unprecedented. Fight back here: bit.ly/Fight4ReproFreedom
The millions this potentially criminal, anti-abortion group received is just the tip of iceberg. Under the leadership of Gov. Abbott, the state hands out millions more to other shady anti-abortion groups every year.

You might be asking yourself, what is Progress Texas Institute and how is it different from Progress Texas.
Progress Texas Insitute is our 501(c)(3) non-profit, which is an IRS tax status that allows donations to be deductible for federal income tax purposes. Work under this status has strict limits on lobbying and political activity. We do our issue education and civic engagement work under this status.
Progress Texas is our 501(c)(4) which is also a non-profit, but donations are NOT deductible for federal income tax purposes. Work under this status has more flexibility for lobbying and political activity.
We split our work between these two organizations depending on the nature of the project.
