The Prison Justice League (PJL) amplifies the voices of prisoners and their loved ones to end mass incarceration in Texas.
PJL was founded in 2013 to address conditions of confinement in Texas prisons, protect the civil rights of the incarcerated, and offer an opportunity for the voices of prisoners to be heard on the issues that affect them the most. Our organization is a member-based organization made up of prisoners from state-run prisons across Texas. We currently have over 1,000 members.
The Prison Justice League is supported by individuals and small foundations, including. Resist, a grassroots organization that funds activist organizing and education work within movements for social change. Founded in 1967, Resist has provided critical funding to groups who’ve led the most important social movements of the past half-century, including the Black Panther Party, 9 to 5: National Organization for Working Women, American Indian Movement, and the United Farm Workers.
