Texas Watch’s core mission is to strengthen consumer protections and ensure that our legal system is open and accessible for all Texans — not just the powerful few. Our thousands of citizen activists are committed to ensuring fairness and accountability in the insurance marketplace and balance in our courts.
We are dedicated to fighting for legal and insurance reforms that give average Texans the legal protections they need. We provide Texas families with a platform to become engaged in the political and legislative process through direct advocacy for real legal and insurance reforms. Our goal is to strengthen protections for children and seniors, lower insurance rates, provide safer workplaces and neighborhoods, and level the playing field for homeowners and small businesses.
To say we couldn't do it without our amazing session interns is an understatement! We've been blessed to have Julia heading up crucial research for us this session. Thank you, Julia, for all of your hard work!
Julia is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis with a B.A. in Psychological & Brain Sciences. After working with one too many test tubes and fruit flies, she ruled out a career in neuroscience research. She realized her passion lies in fighting for social justice and racial equity, and she moved back to her home state of Texas.
We pay over $20 billion in premiums to auto insurance companies each year. Many insurance carriers take advantage of Texas families through gotcha policies, pressure tactics, and deny, delay, underpay schemes.

The 86th Legislative Session is underway, and Texas Watch is on the front lines fighting for working families, consumers, and patients and opposing those who seek special privileges for special interests.
Texas Watch is the only citizen-led consumer advocacy group in our state that advocates on these crucial issues, standing for the 7th Amendment. We’ve had the honor of being in this fight for 20 years, and we wouldn’t be here without our generous supporters and partners in the fight like you, James.
