In #cut50 is proud to partner with the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition!
On Wednesday, March 1, Shakira Pumphrey, J.D., Policy Director will speak on behalf of the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition (TCJC) at the Texas State Capitol in support of the annual Day of Empathy. Organized by #cut50, a national bipartisan initiative of The Dream Corps, the Day of Empathy is a national day of action aimed at generating empathy on a massive scale for millions of Americans impacted by incarceration.
Supported by TCJC, the Day of Empathy brings together impacted people and their families with elected officials to share their stories about the impact of incarceration.
“The Texas Criminal Justice Coalition (TCJC) supports #cut50 in their national Day of Empathy, which aligns with TCJC's mission of advancing legislative solutions to transform the adult and youth justice systems,” says Shakira Pumphrey, J.D., Policy Director. “Working collaboratively, we will build stronger families and safer communities through the reduction of the state’s costly over-reliance on incarceration.”
