DONATE TO LSJA
Texas spends $5 billion on a system that fails 75% of the time.
Why? Because our prisons have become the sole response our community gives to those who experience trauma and poverty, choosing a punitive response to these behavioral health challenges rather than a public health one. Prison then deepens this trauma. We have seen what this looks like firsthand:
It’s a 16-year-old boy, tried as man, who was put into solitary for his own protection, then just forgotten about for 11 years.
Or the 38-year-old man, who meets with his defense counsel with bruises across his face, explaining that these bruises where the latest in a string of violence he had experienced relentlessly since he was incarcerated at 15.
The Lone Star Justice Alliance is a non-profit legal organization that improves the lives of youth and emerging adults in the justice system.
LSJA is a dedicated team of advocates.
We envision a justice system that uses developmentally appropriate responses to behavior and treats youth and emerging adults with equity and dignity to promote resilience, conserve costs, and increase public safety.
