Jolt focuses on issues impacting the Latino community in Texas
Jolt is building a movement of Latinos across Texas to ensure that our community is treated with the respect we deserve. We build the collective voice, power and influence of our community so that our families are treated with equality and dignity.
What we believe is simple — Texas and our democracy are stronger when everyone has a seat at the table and when our voices and families are treated with equality and respect. For too long our community and our contributions have been ignored. The hard work and sacrifices of our families and parents have been belittled by some — calling us “rapists,” “diseased” and “criminals.” We are tired of this hate and are standing up to take back our state and democracy, so that it works for hardworking and honest families like our own. We stand for respect, family and equality.
We’re fighting back against, SB4, a law that that makes being undocumented and brown a crime in Texas.
Artists in resistance
Artist, writers, and musicians are coming together build the visual and sonic soul of our movement.
We are committed to empowering and lifting up the voices of Latinas. Almost 90 percent of Jolt Organizing Institute graduates are Latinas, ready to organize and drive change in their communities.
