Move Texas (Nonprofit )

MOVE is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, grassroots organization building power in underrepresented youth communities through civic education, leadership development, and issue advocacy. And yeah, we’re an acronym, learn it, memorize it, live it.

Mobilize. Organize. Vote. Empower.

MOVE runs a year-round and hands-on leadership development program. It’s like a boot camp for grassroots politics minus the boot and the camp part.

Each of the three sessions throughout the year (spring, summer, and fall) teaches young people how to be citizen lobbyists, how to run a field campaign, and how to engage their peers in the democratic process.

Our mail program uses our voter registration and pledge to vote universe to send educational pieces so voters can not only be registered but actually follow through with an informed ballot.

We also work to demystify the biennial Texas Legislative Session to educate young people with the information they need to be active citizens and registered voters for municipal elections across Texas.

We’re bringing sweet, sweet democracy to the masses. Our army of volunteers (and the occasional vote-bot) are out registering voters, turning out voters to the polls, and helping young people gain a collective political voice across the state. Whether it’s hosting a Saturday Night Live themed candidate forum, speaking to students in their classroom about the importance of voting, or registering voters at your favorite local bar, we’re out there making sure everyone has the opportunity to make their voice heard.
