Our Missionis to lead in the prevention and mitigation of risks,effects, and burdens of Chronic Kidney Disease through advocacy and education. The Texas Renal Coalition has represented patients and families with kidney disease for almost 20 years, providing public awareness of the disease, promoting educational resources among the numerous councils, agencies, and legislative bodies involved with kidney and related issues, and advocating change where needed of state and federal programs. The TRC does this through a network of partners. The TRC is an all-volunteer coalition with no office at this time. It depends on concerned citizens and corporate and private foundations for its support and receives no funds from the state or federal governments.
