Who We Are
We Are TX is a grassroots effort which utilizes directory style listings, profiles, and user stories to positively highlight local organizations, businesses, and communities within the State of Texas.
Stories & Ratings
Our directory is not a traditional review site and our goal is to place positive spotlights on organizations, businesses, and communities to promote economic and social growth and sustainability at a local and statewide level.
Our site utilizes “Stories” submitted by users on their positive experiences with the directory listings. Such stories are encouraged to include as much detail as possible and follow the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How mantra of storytelling.
We believe gaining positive stories on our site is an incentive for businesses and organizations to provide quality service and products and a lack thereof will promote improvement and growth.
Negative stories or comments will not be allowed on our site. A simple star rating system is available for users to submit additional input on their experience with the listing and can be used by visitors to gauge the overall quality of the listing’s services or products.
All stories submitted on listings are subject to review, approval, and basic edits for grammar and structure. No story will be altered from its intended message and purpose.
In our commitment to promoting local organizations and businesses all directory listings must be locally owned and/or operated within the State of Texas and if claimed must be managed by the owner or authorized associate responsible for the listing.
Users must first register and agree to our Terms of Service before being allowed to add or claim listings and/or submit stories on listings.

Claimed Listings: Owners/Associates can Claim Free Listings submitted by other users or the We Are TX team. They’re own Free Listing can be “upgraded” to Claimed.
Listing Reviews: Periodically listings may be held in a pending status and remain unpublished until a We Are TX team member has completed a review. It is our utmost priority to review submissions in a timely manner and get your listing up as soon as possible. Notification of your submission’s approval will be sent by email upon completion.
We Are TX reserves the right to verify any claimed listings through email, phone, or additional means. If any listings are found to be Claimed by users who are not the Owners/Associates responsible for that listing then the listings will be deleted and the user barred from accessing our services further.
Additional Listing Types
Free Event and Calendar listings are also available to help communities, organizations, and businesses promote local gatherings, functions, meetings, and social events.
Unapproved Claimed Listings
If you are an Owner/Associate responsible for your business or organization and have found a listing that has been falsely claimed by another user we ask that you please inform We Are TX as promptly as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org so the listing can be either deleted or transferred and its user removed from our site.
