The Faith in Texas Live Free DFW campaign is pleased to invite you to our District Attorney Forum, Show Your Receipts: If Your Budget is Moral, Make it Public. As a community, we understand that a budget is a moral document that reflects a District Attorney’s priorities. The proposed budgets of our candidates will allow us to see clearly whether their priorities lie on programs that will restore our communities, or merely punish them. That is why Faith in Texas has issued a clear message to our candidates: If your budget is moral, make it public!
During this event, Faith in Texas will present our Criminal Justice priorities and highlight what is at stake for our communities before candidates are given an opportunity to present their proposed budgets for the office. You will see and hear art, music, and powerful messages from directly impacted community members and clergy leaders. After hearing from our community, candidates will have a chance to make short presentations about their proposed budgets and priorities for the District Attorney office.
LIVE FREE DFW LIVE FREE DFW is a campaign of Faith in Texas, working to bring an end to mass incarceration, community violence, and the targeting of black, brown and low-income people by our criminal justice system. Steps towards this include passing robust Fair Chance Hiring and Housing policies, passing policies that end arrests for low-level, non-violent misdemeanors, and scaling down mass incarceration in the state of Texas.
