Texas Jail Project is launching a new project called: “Jailhouse Stories: Effects of Pretrial Detention”
The project will collect accounts about what happens to people held in county jails before they are tried for a crime. If you have a story about what you or your loved one experienced while in jail, please contact TJP to set up an interview! Contributors can remain anonymous – it’s just important for your voice to be heard. Jailhouse Stories will be shared with media outlets, lawmakers, and social leaders to educate Texas about the need to incarcerate less, create more diversion programs, and improve conditions in local jails.
