Campus Chapters

Our chapters are the starting point for turning ideas into action. With 25 member groups in colleges and high schools across the state, we are mobilizing the next generation of leaders to make impactful and lasting change in their communities. 

Through our training and day-to-day guidance, we provide our chapters with meaningful, hands-on, advocacy experiences, using personal storytelling and other organizing tactics to effectively influence progressive change across Texas.

All of our chapters are led by an amazing Campus Organizer, who are provided with  a $2,000 stipend per semester for their work. 

Our chapters also receive:

  • A $250 operational budget per semester for their chapter needs¬†
  • An online organizing tool-kit¬†
  • In-person and online support from our Youth Organizing Manager¬†
  • Year-round advocacy and leadership development trainings

“Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Capstone Project

Each semester, we support our chapters in organizing Capstone Projects based on their own inherent passions. Through the course of these projects, our young advocates learn how to mobilize their peers into action, build relationships with other community leaders, and uplift issues like sexual violence, reproductive justice, menstrual equity, LGBTQIA equality, immigration reform, and more. Their ideas have ranged from stocking campus restrooms with menstrual products, to re-writing the laws that govern response to campus sexual assault, to building their own voter engagement and turn-out teams.


“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made… It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.”
