CCPPI EVICTION PREVENTION RESOURCES MAP
This resource map was developed by CCPPI team members and interns to support the implementation of the Eviction Prevention Initiative and Resource Center established by Judge Jeremy L. Brown, Harris County Justice of the Peace for Precinct 7, Place 1. This tool provides a listing of several food, financial and housing assistance agencies available in and around (a few beyond) Precinct 7 boundaries as of March 2020.
MAPPING POLICE VIOLENCE
Mapping Police Violence recently released their report which represents the most comprehensive account of deadly police violence in 2020. 1,127 people were killed by the police last year. Black people were more likely to be killed by the police, more likely to be unarmed and less likely to be threatening someone when killed. Click here to learn more and view the interactive report.
In Austin, Christopher Taylor, the officer who shot and killed Michael Ramos, an unarmed Black and Hispanic man, that began protests in Texas against police brutality (just weeks before George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis), has been charged with murder.
