Act Local -> Rep for the State

Living in the Austin area confers an added responsibility to our fellow residents of the Republic of Texas, during the 140 days, every other year, that the legislature is in session.

So much will happen, in such a short time, that will impact the lives of over 28 million people.

  • Education-funding stands to get gentrified and gutted,
  • the human rights of the non-cisheterowhite person are targeted from every angle,
  • We could win an electoral struggle we've been engaged in for over 30 years,
  • and much much more

We are a microcosm of the national agenda (much of it began here), and the decisions made here will immediately impact well over 60% of the population.

If you find this unacceptable, we implore you to take action with us.

The successes and failures of the next three months will impact our lives for generations to come.

UT Greens

There are Green Party organizations in Travis County, the state of Texas, the United States nationally, and in many other nations globally.

Why a UT Greens organization on the campus of the University of Texas?

Because the future that's being crafted by those in power is the future you're going to be living in! The politicians of today aren't going to have to live with the consequences of their short-sighted actions, but you are.
