Fall 2020 Grant Recipient #3: Texas Civil Rights Project
for November 24, 2020
We are excited to announce our 3rd Fall 2020 Grant Recipient!
Thanks to our generous donor community, Texas Civil Rights Project is receiving a $25,000 grant towards their Criminal Injustice Reform (CIR) Program. This program strives to remedy the injustices of Texas’s criminal legal system for people suffering inside and outside of jails and prisons. They aim to ensure that felony arrestees are afforded their due Constitutional protection against wrongful deprivation of the right to bodily liberty—the most important right protected by the Constitution, other than the right to life itself. This reform project will impact the nearly 30,000 people—who are disproportionately Black and Brown, and enduring financial hardship—locked up pre-trial on felony charges each year in the county, as well as their loved ones who also endure the damaging consequences.
TCRP is doing incredible work and we are thrilled to support them! Learn more about their great work here: https://texascivilrightsproject.org/action/
