When people chart productive lives despite the stigma and shame of a criminal record, their stories deserve the same level of coverage media grants to the "crime of the week."

Incapacitating people behind bars is a waste of human capital. Let's promote rehabilitation and reentry.

Because of reform efforts in Texas, the prison population is declining and people have improved access to housing and employment.

Texas Criminal Justice Coalition needs your support to achieve even more ambitious goals. There are still more than 147,000 people in prison in Texas, many of whom would thrive in the community if only they could access less costly treatment. Please I appreciate your support for our continued efforts.

Please donate to Texas Criminal Justice Coalition via the Amplify Austin campaign:
