RJC Texas

Mission Statement

Without racial justice, there is no justice. Our mission is to unify the state of Texas around the central idea that racial bias in death penalty sentencing of Texans is against our convictions as a state.

Our courts are intended to be avenues of equity and justice. If the law is applied unjustly, our institutions are only serving a portion of the public. We are fighting for equal justice in the justice system.

The 'why?' Behind the 'what?'

WHY DO LEGISLATIVE COALITIONS MATTER?

A legislative coalition is an alliance of individuals and organizations created to achieve a common political goal such as passing legislation, opposing legislation, or advocating for legislation centered around a common mission or ideal.

The Racial Justice Coalition of Texas was formed to bring individuals and organizations together for one goal: to introduce and pass the Racial Justice Act. Through collaboration, all members of the RJC of Texas can ensure that any Texan will not receive the death penalty on account of race.

Join Us.

Contact us through social media or at contact.tx@racialjustice-coalition.com. We are looking for community coalition partners in order to make the vision of racial equality reflective of our state as a whole. Partnership with the RJC of Texas does not cost any time, money, or effort.
