Justice too long delayed is justice denied. — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
The mission of Pure Justice is to empower our members and supporters to advocate for the changes they want to see in our criminal justice system and for the economic opportunities they need. Through community organizing and civic engagement, we aim to transform institutions, create equity, and improve the lives of low to moderate income families in Harris County.
Criminal Justice Reform
Seldom includes the voices of the youth. We are in the process of putting together a youth criminal justice reform council comprised of high school juniors and seniors as well as college students to gain insight on how they’d like to see the criminal justice system work for them!
Our latest elections have been met with much voter apathy and low turnout, particularly by marginalized citizens. Many feel that their voices aren’t valuable and are rarely heard, therefore we are starting a “Your Vote Matters" campaign to raise political consciousness and voter participation within the community.
