Our Story

Foundation for Change

BRIDGE was born out of a vital need to harness the collective power of grassroots organizations in Texas.

From our inception in June 2021, we've rapidly expanded our reach, becoming a key ally to those at the forefront of social change. Our growth shows the tenacity of local activists and the strength of collaborative movements.

As we continue to support the proliferation of grassroots organizations, BRIDGE is dedicated to creating deep-rooted progress, nurturing the seeds of advocacy into statewide impact. With each initiative, we strive to reinforce the fabric of Texas' communities with resilience, innovation, and unwavering support for democracy and justice.

Our Vision

Shaping Tomorrow’s Texas

We envision a future where Texas' vibrant community movements are the driving force for sustainable social innovation and democratic engagement.
