40 for 40 Sustainer Drive!

Today, we are launching a campaign to reach 40 sustaining monthly donations in 40 days! Our monthly sustainer program is the best way to pledge ongoing support to the work of Grassroots Leadership and our efforts to bring an end mass incarceration, detention and deportation. Monthly sustainership is people-powered fundraising, consistent with our people-powered mission. 

We have had quite the 2016, with the Department of Justice announced that it will phase out the use of federal private prisons. Last week, after 8 months living in sanctuary at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Austin, Guatemalan asylum-seekers Hilda and her son Ivan were granted deferred action. We are expanding Texas Advocates for Justice (TAJ) chapters to organize with those impacted by the criminal justice system across Texas. And, Austin became the first Fair Chance Hiring City in the South following a concerted campaign led by Second Chance Democrats this past spring. 

Recurring monthly contributions is the best way to sustain the momentum! With a monthly sustainership, YOU determine what amount is right for you each month. As we work together to end mass incarceration, detention and deportation, we’re grateful every day for the support of our allies, partners and supporters. Thank You.
