Texas After Violence Project

The Texas After Violence Project is an independent narrative and human rights project. They:

  1. listen empathetically and without judgment to people directly touched by serious violence or other serious human rights violations, the criminal justice system, incarceration, and executions in Texas; 
  2. digitally record and transcribe these narratives;
  3. share the recordings and transcriptions to the extent, at the time, and in the manner to which individual narrators consent; so that we may
  4. promote collective, critical, and constructive conversations in which communities develop more effective, just, and compassionate ways to both prevent and respond to violence.

They work toward a more just and less violent Texas: a society that recognizes and affirms the dignity and value of every human being.
