We’re with our friends from Planned Parenthood Texas Votes to talk about how Senate Bill 22 must be stopped at the Legislature. Join our petition to tell lawmakers to #StopSB22 and show you’re for #CareNoMatterWhat.
Ed Espinoza, our Executive Director here at Progress Texas, joined FOX 7 Austin to talk about the dangerous Senate Bill 9, or “Slow Down The Vote" Bill.
SB 9 is simply designed to keep those in power in power.
Tara Pohlmeyer, our Communications Associate here at Progress Texas, joined KVUE’s weekly political segment to discuss the bill that blatantly attacks anti-LGBTQIA+ residents, as well as big bills we’re watching as session winds down.

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.
