The PoliChic Engagement Fund, otherwise known as PoliChic Texas, is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization working to engage Texas women in elections and issue advocacy. Founded in 2019, PoliChic Texas has volunteers actively engaged to remind hard-to-count households to complete their Census, educate voters eligible for mail-in voting, and registered voters about the upcoming runoff elections. Our volunteers consist of women from various ethnic, socioeconomic, and career backgrounds.
Our model is built around creating hyperlocal civic clubs, managed by women leading in their own community and engaging with volunteers. Volunteers are often friends, their teenage children, boyfriends, girlfriends, wives, husbands -- whomever they define as their community. The goal is to educate and train women through their real-life experiences about how to have the communities and representation they desire. We do this by getting them engaged.
PoliChic envisions a world where Texas women work together to lead voter engagement, education, and policy engagement in hyperlocal civic (engagement) clubs. We seek to establish a PoliChic-led civic engagement club in every Texas community.
