Statewide Leadership Council Advocacy Team

The Statewide Leadership Council’s Steering Committee is supported by a growing Advocacy Team of system-impacted people throughout Texas. Local leaders who join the Advocacy Team have the opportunity to build their leadership and organizing skills by advocating in their communities across the state and at the Texas Legislature. The Advocacy Team is comprised of individuals who have experienced incarceration or otherwise been impacted by the justice system. If you are system-impacted and ready to fight for change, please fill out this form to share your information with the SLC’s Steering Committee.

Where is the Advocacy Team Based?

The SLC is excited to share more about the Advocacy Team as their work gets underway!
