With more than 45 years of experience helping restore men and women behind bars, Prison Fellowship advocates for federal and state criminal justice reforms that recognize the value and potential of every person. We promote reforms that help transform those responsible for crime, validate victims, and create safer communities through proportional punishment, constructive corrections culture, and second chances.
In the 2023 legislative session, Prison Fellowship will work to remove government barriers to gainful work for Texans with a criminal record. Additionally, we will support efforts to foster ethical and effective policing practices that protect civilians and police officers from unnecessary harm.
