possible for individuals to have their voices heard by their elected
officials. The program is designed to
educate and engage employee-voters, resulting in a better climate for economic
growth, competitiveness and jobs in Texas.
The Prosperity Project allows individuals to
make a difference in their own prosperity by becoming more informed about those
issues and taking actions that are in their own best interest. Information shared via the Texas Prosperity

“The programs and activities undertaken
by the Texas Prosperity Project have a very positive impact on the economy and
job creation in the state,” Gregory Casey, President and CEO of BIPAC,
said. “The national business community understands the hard work and
thoughtful leadership that makes such efforts possible, and we are pleased to
recognize these examples from one of the very best and most effective
grassroots and issue education initiatives in the country.”
The Prosperity Project, also known as P2, is
a national program that is designed to engage employees and voters on public
policy issues and motivate them to exercise their right to vote. It is one of the nation’s largest business
grassroots networks, with more than 40 affiliated state programs and an
estimated potential audience of more than 10 million individuals. During the previous election cycle, P2
delivered nearly 200 million messages to employees and associates across the
nation, provided more than 2 million voter forms and generated 2 million
messages to elected officials.
While voter interest remains steady,
understanding of economic issues still lags. The Prosperity Project is designed
to help bridge that gap effectively and provide individuals with useful
information when making important decisions.
Rather than telling people how to vote, it arms them with valid data to
help them reach informed opinions of their own.
