Educating Texans about the role of the Railroad Commission and the importance of our state’s oil and natural gas oversight agency
Advocating for reforms to the Railroad Commission to make it more effective and to better hold the oil and natural gas sector accountable
Pushing for the cleanup of oil and natural gas impacts on Texas land and groundwater so that Texans don’t get stuck cleaning up for polluters
Inclusive decision making is one of Commission Shift’s core values. We believe that oil and gas workers, farmers and ranchers, neighbors of oil and gas development, students of Texas’ public schools, energy consumers, and the many others that are affected by the oil and gas industry in Texas deserve stability, safety, clean air, and clean water.
Having a strong democracy includes more than showing up to the polls. Our state can achieve better results in rulemakings, strategic plans, permit proceedings, and more when the public is meaningfully engaged, authentically listened to, and when their needs are incorporated into decisions.Get Involved
