Get Involved at the Capitol

Every other year, Texans get the opportunity to change the laws of our state and create the world we want to see. The Texas legislative session spans 140 days and opens the door both to progress and attacks on our LGBTQ+ community. As the largest statewide organization fighting for LGBTQ+ rights in Texas, Equality Texas is your resource for issue-based education, action alerts, and how to make your voice heard.

Below are some resources for the 2021 Texas Legislative Session.


Whether you live in Austin or elsewhere, all Texans deserve to have a voice at the Legislature, and Equality Texas is dedicated to guiding and ensuring that opportunity. Whether you volunteer with Equality Texas or contact your legislator via email or phone, your voice and your concerns should be heard.


With the pandemic still looming all around us, providing your testimony to Equality Texas will allow us to deliver your words to the Capital from the safety of your home.

There is truth in the saying that there is strength in numbers. That’s why we have open letters regarding several issues in front of legislators that members of our community-at-large can sign. These letters address proposed legislation and send a message that equality is a Texas value.

If you know any affirming healthcare professionals, faith leaders, or sports fans, please share these sign-on letters so that we can activate our community as these issues unfold. And then ask those people to share the letters with five others to sign. We can show our strength in numbers.


Business leaders know that brand matters. And the brand of the state of Texas on LGBTQ issues matters to economic competitiveness.

Texas Competes is a partnership of business leaders committed to a Texas that is economically vibrant and welcoming of all people, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.
