Texas voters have been under assault by failed leaders who protect their power through discrimination and suppression. Campaign Legal Center is our essential ally bringing the courage, leadership and legal expertise to protect the liberties we are guaranteed only through free and fair elections.

WHAT WE DO

 

We develop solutions that enhance our democracy. 

CLC works with state and local governments, Congress, national organizations and grassroots advocates to draft model legislation and offer legal advice on how to pass the most effective and sound laws and regulations. 

 

We demand enforcement of the laws protecting our democracy.

CLC serves as a watchdog, applying pressure to governmental agencies that fail to enforce campaign finance laws and voting protections.

 

We defend and advance democracy in court. 

CLC's lawyers litigate cases across the nation protecting voting rights, fighting unconstitutional gerrymandering and defending against attacks on campaign finance and disclosure laws.

 

We disseminate education materials highlighting ongoing threats to our democracy.

CLC issues reports, fact sheets and other materials to educate reporters, partner organizations and the general public about current laws protecting our democracy and any threats to these laws.
