MOVE Texas (Mobilize - Organize - Vote - Empower) is a grassroots, nonpartisan nonprofit organization building power in underrepresented youth communities through civic education, leadership development, and issue advocacy. We work to build the political power of Texas’s young people by registering them to vote, organizing with them, and empowering them to lead on the issues that matter most to their communities. MOVE Texas was started in 2013 by a group of passionate students at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and has since become one of the most effective voter registration and engagement groups in the state.
The MOVE Texas Civic Fund is a fiscally sponsored project of the Alliance for Youth Organizing and the Civic Fund board operates in an advisory capacity. For full scope of what it means to be a MOVE Texas Action Fund Board Member, please see the MOVE Texas Board Position Description.
