About TexPIRG

When consumers are cheated or the voices of ordinary citizens are drowned out by special interest lobbyists, TexPIRG speaks up and takes action. We uncover threats to public health and well-being and fight to end them, using the time-tested tools of investigative research, media exposés, grassroots organizing, advocacy and litigation. TexPIRG’s mission is to deliver persistent, result-oriented public interest activism that protects consumers, encourages a fair, sustainable economy, and fosters responsive, democratic government.

“TexPIRG is a non-partisan advocacy organization that provides lots of research and public plea opportunities. Their sibling organization, Environment Texas, provides interns opportunities to help in both organizations and be up-to-date on what's happening with both! The community is very good, as is cross-department and cross-organization communication.”
