New Member Highlight | Texas Advocacy Project

Established in 1982 as a non-profit, Texas Advocacy Project’s mission is to prevent domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking throughout Texas through FREE legal services, access to the justice system, and education.

In 2019, Texas Advocacy Project served 4,738 clients, impacting the lives of 10,659 survivors and their children. In addition to legal services, Texas Advocacy Project provides free trainings and education to thousands of individuals across Texas including judges, prosecutors, crime victim services personnel, legal advocates, medical professionals, universities, and students.
Throughout the year, our Hope Campaigns (Handbags for Hope, Backpacks for Hope, Teen Ambassadors of Hope & Hope for the Holidays) bring the community together to raise awareness of power-based abuse.

You can support the critical work we do, by joining us at an upcoming event, such as our Kentucky Derby Watch Party, Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 at W Austin. Austinites are invited to don their springtime fashion and express their inner Southern Belle as they enjoy the beautiful spring weather to view the “greatest two minutes in sports” on the big screen! Attendees will be treated to a Ben Milam whiskey tasting, a complementary mint julep, music on the patio, a pop-up hat shop and best dressed contest.

To learn more, visit or call 512-225-9594. If you need help, call our legal line at 1-800-374-HOPE.

New Member Highlight | EdgePresence

EdgePresence is an owner and operator of edge points of presence (PoP) providing space, power, bandwidth, or interconnection on a leased basis either in multi-tenant or in single tenant build-to-suit. Our PoP’s allow you to deploy a state-of-the-art network of edge storage or computing near where you or your customers need it most without having to deal with the capital expense and operating complexity of building out and maintaining your own network of environments.

We are currently deploying our edge data centers (EDCs) across 20 markets throughout the U.S. Edge Data Centers are purpose-built edge micro data centers, comprehensively and compactly designed to include critical power, distribution, physical security and cooling. EDCs are anchored at the base of cell towers, key real estate, and enterprise campus locations enabling us to deploy within 12 miles from end users. This can be called the “far edge.” Each point of presence is a secure, redundant, remotely managed, and climate-controlled environment to allow you to deploy standard (e.g., 19″ 1 or 2 U) servers or storage, communications equipment or routers, and other gear.

We are serving as a turnkey solution for businesses looking to implement a flexible and dynamic edge compute strategy, nationally. Along with our Cell Tower partners, EdgePresence will build, deploy and operate hundreds of micro edge data centers across the United States with initial markets in Jacksonville, FL, Austin, TX, Pittsburgh, PA, Waycross, GA, Denver, CO, Atlanta, GA, Boulder, CO and Greenville, SC.

New Member Highlight | eBay

eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY) is a global commerce leader including the Marketplace and Classifieds platforms. Collectively, we connect millions of buyers and sellers around the world, empowering people and creating opportunity for all. Founded in 1995 in San Jose, California, eBay is one of the world’s largest and most vibrant marketplaces for discovering great value and unique selection.

Shoppers expect to be able to check out and pay on the site where they’re shopping. eBay will now manage the payments transaction, which means shoppers will be able to complete their purchases all on eBay.

With eBay managing payments, sellers:

– Sell and get paid in one place, on eBay
– Streamline their operations by having payouts consistently initiated to their bank account in 2 business days of an order confirmation, regardless of how a buyer paid

When buyers purchase from a seller for whom eBay manages payments, they have more ways to pay and enjoy a more streamlined checkout experience. As we make this transition, eBay will work closely with sellers to ensure that the managed payments experience reflects their needs.
