About Commission Shift
Commission Shift is a fast-growing Texas-based 501(c)3 non-profit founded in March 2021. Our mission is to reform oil and gas oversight by building public support to hold the Railroad Commission of Texas accountable to its mission in a shifting energy landscape.
The Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC) is one of the most important oil and gas regulators in the world. Contrary to what its name implies, the Railroad Commission has no authority over railroads. Instead, the agency oversees oil and gas development, coal and uranium mining, and gas utility service in Texas, among other functions. Its mission is to serve Texas through stewardship of natural resources and the environment, concern for personal and community safety, and support of enhanced development and economic vitality for the beneﬁt of Texans.
Too often, the Commission has promoted accelerated development of oil and gas over all other parts of its mission -- to the detriment of natural resources and the environment, safety, and economic vitality.
Commission Shift’s goal is to build broad public support from a wide array of stakeholder voices to advance changes at the RRC that improve the agency’s function, transparency, and accountability to people and places impacted by the oil and gas industry. Our vision is for these changes at the RRC to support an energy transition in Texas that beneﬁts the climate while fostering consumer protection and choice, public engagement, transparent government, a clean environment, a stable workforce and an economically diverse and resilient economy.

Commission Shift is seeking a passionate and self-motivated organizer to develop and execute a non-partisan Get Out To Vote (GOTV) campaign focused on the Railroad Commission of Texas election. More than half of Texas voters don’t know that the Railroad Commission of Texas oversees oil and gas development and the Voter Mobilization Program Coordinator will help to change that.
As a member of the organizing team, the Voter Mobilization Program Coordinator will report to the Organizing Director. The coordinator will work with strategic campaign consultants and digital consultants to develop an overall outreach strategy to reach a broad base of potential voters using non-partisan outreach and education tactics and language. The coordinator will design and deliver in-person and virtual educational presentations about the Railroad Commission and key voting information to groups including partner organizations, community groups, and any relevant stakeholder group leading up to March 2024 major-party primaries and the November 2024 elections.
