The long term goal of Organize Justice is to reform the criminal justice system at the local, state, and federal level. We are based in Dallas, so our efforts begin here but we will work on any municipal issue in any city anywhere in the country. While we will be active in the state legislature of Texas, OJ will be vigilant of legislation being proposed in other states as well. Finally, legislation on the federal level has the scope to affect large numbers of people with one stroke of the pen. We must take advantage of opportunities and defend against threats at the federal level.
Conceived over many months of organizing and networking throughout Dallas and surrounding communities, Organize Justice was officially born in 2015. We stand in the gap, between community government and those citizens who, because of involvement with the criminal justice system, remain disenfranchised from active involvement in the very cities they live and work in. Organize Justice believes exactly what its name states: that justice can only be effectively served when every citizen has the opportunity for his or her voice to be heard.
