Region / Houston



Houston, TX is the largest city in the state of Texas and fourth largest in the United States. The district serves over 189,000 students. The “Bayou City” is known as a hub committed to equity and innovation due to its diversity, vast economy, and several notable institutions such as the Texas Medical Center and NASA’s Johnson Space Center. In this region, we are committed to working with our members and partners to increase equity by advocating with the people who work and live here. Through skill-building opportunities, networking events, and leadership development support, we guide you towards achieving the impact you want to make in Houston through your work in policy, advocacy, community organizing, or as an elected leader.
