How It Works

ECPR Texas understands that there is nothing more powerful than the organized voices of many coming together as one to enact change. Our team has a proven track record building coalitions across the state, with experience ranging from a multi-year effort to bring a Major League Soccer club to Austin–resulting in Austin FC–to a statewide coalition opposed to book bans in schools.

We are the b2c(community) experts in Austin, and we know what it takes to successfully build a coalition from the ground up, beginning with a coalition name and brand to messaging, media relations, and digital strategy and execution.
