We want fewer kids entering youth or adult prisons, more kids kept closer to home, trauma-informed programming, and a path to redemption for those who can prove they merit a second chance.
We want lower prison and jail populations – with effective, community-based treatment and supervision, and fairness in sentencing – as well as safer prison conditions and more opportunities for successful parole and reentry.
We want to stem the tide of women’s incarceration, improve their conditions of confinement and expand their access to services, and help women safely and successfully return to their families and communities.
The Texas Criminal Justice Coalition is proud to sponsor the Statewide Leadership Council (SLC), which puts system-impacted leaders at the forefront of the movement to transform the justice system in Texas. The SLC is led by a Steering Committee, which will be supported by a growing Advocacy Team of system-impacted people across Texas.
