Texas Campaign for the Environment

About the organization

Texas Campaign for the Environment (TCE) has been fighting for every Texan’s right to clean land, clean air, and clean water since 1991.

Our purpose is to organize communities across the state to stand up to big polluters, to keep the pressure on our elected officials to do everything in their power to protect the people they serve, and to keep our homes and livelihoods safe and healthy for the present day as well as the generations to come.

If you have a passion for work that creates a difference in the world around you or if you’ve noticed the declining state of environmental protections and you want to do something about it please keep reading to learn more about how you can get involved with the movement!
