About The Texas Criminal Justice Coalition

Mission

The Texas Criminal Justice Coalition (TCJC) identifies and advances real solutions to the problems facing Texas’ juvenile and criminal justice systems. We conduct policy research and analysis, form effective partnerships, and educate key stakeholders to promote effective management, accountability, and best practices that increase public safety, save taxpayer dollars, and preserve human and civil rights.

Our Vision and Values

TCJC credits the success of our organization to the purposeful integration of our shared values into all aspects of our work. We value equality, collaboration, perseverance, integrity, and respect. These values contribute to the formation of our overarching policy goals and shape our daily interactions with community members, advocates, practitioners, agency leaders, and policy-makers.
