Just Liberty - State of Texas
Just Liberty - Vertical Rule

Every Day in Texas

People are arrested  
  and taken to jail for  
  simple traffic violation.

People languish in  
  jail for minor  
  offenses because they  
  can’t afford bail.

People must fight  
  the confiscation of  
  their cash or their cars  
  even though they have not  
  been convicted of  
  any crime.

Taxpayers pay  
  millions to arrest,  
  book and jail people who  
  pose no threat to  
 public safety.

Individuals’ zone of  
  personal privacy  
  is diminished.

Innocent people  
  lose jobs, housing,  
  credit, and more because  
  it takes years to get a  
  false arrest removed from  
  your record.

We have a Bipartisan Plan to Preserve Liberty and Safety

Democrats support reform because unjustified or overzealous criminal enforcement stops people from getting jobs, student loans and more.

Republicans support reform because individual liberty, unencumbered by government intrusion, will keep the Texas economy strong, taxes low, and incur values of personal responsibility.

It will take lawmakers from both parties, and help from you,
to change Texas laws which reduce our liberty and tax our pocketbooks while doing so little to make us safe.

Just Liberty - Prison Complex

Special Interests will oppose reforms

A huge industry relies on a high and constant rate of arrest and incarceration. Even though Texas is now enjoying the lowest crime rates most of us have known in our lifetimes, we have built up our jail, prison, prosecution and law enforcement manpower, and those powerful groups are deployed to address smaller and smaller crimes. When a person is arrested and jailed for failure to signal a lane change, we’ve gone way too far.

This industry will resist any effort to restrict its nearly unfettered power.

Your voice will make the difference. Lawmakers need to hear from people all across this great state, and that’s what Just Liberty can help do. We will keep you up to date as bills move through the process, and tell you exactly when to email or call your own lawmaker before a critical vote. These kind of bills rarely get media attention, so you can’t rely on your local paper to keep you informed. You can rely on Just Liberty.

Share Your Experience

Most of us have had some experience with Texas’ massive justice system – and those experiences often illustrate the problems that Just Liberty hopes to solve. Maybe you were you the victim of a burglary that never got solved. Maybe you experienced even more serious crimes and still wait for resolution. Maybe your rights were violated at a traffic stop. When so much of our public safety system is deployed stopping ordinary people for minor offenses, sometimes the complex and more serious crimes don’t get solved..

Have you or a family member experienced an unjust arrest or incarceration? Did a minor offense prevent you from getting a job, credit or housing? Your story can help move freedom bills forward.
