The mission of the Texas After Violence Project is to listen empathetically, carefully, and without judgment to people directly touched by serious violence, the criminal justice system, incarceration, and executions in Texas; to share our findings widely, to the extent and in the manner consistent with individual interview narrators' express permission; and to promote collective, critical, and constructive conversations about effective ways to prevent and respond to violence. We work toward a more just and less violent Texas: a society that recognizes and affirms the dignity and value of every human being.
