Bexar County Reform Work

Participating in Local Coalition Advocacy

When the Texas Organizing Project (TOP) expanded its work to San Antonio, we collectively assessed jail commitments to get a better understanding of the landscape, and helped craft an informal policy agenda, including cite-and-release, juvenile reform, and indigent defense.

Prior to Texas’ March 2018 primary elections, we helped write a questionnaire for DA candidates, as well as support the Fair Punishment Project (now the Justice Collaborative) and MOVE San Antonio, who partnered with local organizations to hold a candidate forum.

In 2020, TCJE was invited to join SA Stands, a local collaborative committed to reducing the number of people in jail and ceasing unnecessary collaboration between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities.
