A new thing is happening in Texas.

We want walkable urban neighborhoods with access to all that Texas has to offer by high quality transit.

We want to preserve Texas land and rural communities and to find a way to decouple Texas economic growth from ecological destruction.

We want equitable, democratic institutions making wise decisions based on open data, open debate, and diverse representation.

We want safe streets and healthy neighborhoods where a diversity of access and mobility options provide for our needs without killing ten people a day.
