Your gift will help TCJC fight for vulnerable and marginalized populations, who often become entangled in Texas’ criminal justice system. We want policies and practices that will better support teenagers and young adults, women, people with substance use and mental health issues, the LGBTQ community, and people without stable housing supports. Not only are these populations failed by our justice system, but Texas families and communities are harmed as more people are driven into incarceration, and taxpayers are left to foot the bill for unsuccessful policies and practices.
