Goals involving religious leaders in the political process at the Texas Legislature and State Board of Education; working with the media to ensure that the religious right is not the only representative of people of faith in the news; organizing and publicizing clergy statements on important political issues of the day; and training people of faith to speak with an effective religious voice on issues facing our communities
Approach based in Austin, the Texas Freedom Network acts as the state’s watchdog, monitoring far-right issues, organizations, money and leaders. The organization has been instrumental in defeating initiatives backed by the religious right in Texas, including private school vouchers and textbook censorship at the Texas State Board of Education.
