Every day, Grassroots Leadership works to build a movement end our nation’s reliance on criminalization, incarceration, detention and deportation.
This year, we've had some tremendous successes — from the Department of Justice's announcement
that it will phase out the use of federal private prisons to helping make Austin the first Fair Chance Hiring
City in the South; winning an injunction
prohibiting Texas from licensing family detention camps as childcare facilities to the launch of a new Texas Advocates for Justice (TAJ)
chapter organizing with formerly incarcerated people here in Austin; from releasing "Indefensible
," our first book, to shine the light on the criminalization of migration to the expansion of the Hutto Visitation Program
and the ICE Out of Austin
None of this would be possible without the dedication of our supporters, advocates and community members. This party is to celebrate all of the hard work of our staff, board, allies, sustainers and donors who make our work possible. Come celebrate with us, become a monthly sustainer and help build the momentum to continue our progress!
If you can't make the event, but would still like to make a donation, you can do so here.
