Program areas at Grassroots Leadership

Criminal justice programs - the criminal justice programs work to end for- profit private prisons and jails and end criminalization of communities of color while building a base of impacted people and allies for change. Campaigns under this program include a campaign to end the treatment industrial complex, a campaign to reduce incarceration in Texas and close prison and jail facilities, and a campaign to end criminalization of homelessness, mental health issues and substance use, and other factors driving mass incarceration. In addition, Texas advocates for justice (taj) is a project of directly impacted people striving to end criminalization of our communities, break down the barriers of reentry from jail and prison in Texas, and to demolish the legacy of racism in the criminal justice system. Taj unites formerly incarcerated individuals, their families, people of all faiths, and allies to build safe and resilient communities through organizing, Leadership training, and connections to community resources.
