This week, Just Liberty and a coalition of 16 different organizations will ask the Texas Department of Public Safety to limit arrests for traffic infractions by Texas state troopers.
After a successful legislative session, Just Liberty has a lot going on this summer and, thanks to you and other supporters, we’re continuing to have an impact on the terms of debate surrounding criminal justice in Texas.
You’ve stuck with Just Liberty through a long, grueling process this legislative session, and we can’t thank you enough for your resilience and commitment to criminal justice reform. Congratulations for being a part of a movement that helped to pass some major bills.
Greetings! Thank you for joining Just Liberty’s growing, bipartisan list of Texans committed to giving tickets instead of arrest for minor traffic offenses and small amounts of pot, and reducing overly harsh penalties for a range of other minor infractions.
At the capitol in Austin, May of odd-numbered years is crunch time, when literally thousands of bills have now died and the handful that remain are engaged in a desperate race to pass both chambers before the session ends at the end of the month.
We are in high gear at the capitol, and Just Liberty doesn’t want you to miss a moment. Our list of reforms is growing and the bills are making their way in and out of committees as we speak. You’ve been instrumental in the momentum behind these bills and in their movement.
Right now, with all that’s going on nationally, it’s critical to pay attention to criminal-justice reform in Texas, where the Legislature is already meeting and we can have an immediate impact.
