Safety and Criminal Justice

 

Advocating for safe communities, criminal justice reform and human justice   

Our focus on safety includes taking a stand on issues of community safety and criminal justice reform.  Staff involvement in local community meetings, such as City of Houston Complete Communities Super Neighborhood meetings, Third Ward Community Cloth meetings and other ongoing efforts with various community organizations and civic leaders provide opportunities for ccppi to further understand, add voice to, and/or support community needs. At regional and statewide levels, ccppi advocates for bail reform, criminal justice reform and other legislation that serves to improve community safety and criminal justice.  Some community interactions included promotion of the showing of two HBO documentaries (Traffic Stop and Sandra Bland) followed by panel discussions, and attendance at the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council Quarterly Meetings.  During the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition webinar that unveiled a powerful tool that can be used for criminal justice advocacy, ccppi staff made comments on the Harris County Data/TCJC dashboard and other potential data it could provide.  Due to its current capacity to pull potentially impactful data points (i.e., race & charges, community policing practices, bail trends, sentencing, etc.) we recommend use of the Harris County Dashboard found at tcjcdashboard.org for advocacy purposes.
