We are so proud to have worked with our partners on this issue and thrilled that the Governor has taken this bold step!
Once again Governor Abbott and Chairman David Gutierrez are leading on issues involving human trafficking and bringing dignity, compassion, and grace to these victims. “Texas is committed to empowering the survivors of domestic abuse and human trafficking, and one of the surest signals of that goal is laying out a true path to redemption and restoration," said Governor Abbott. "The gubernatorial pardon plays an important role in this redemption process because it offers a second chance to survivors with criminal convictions resulting from their abuse or exploitation.
We are grateful for our ongoing partnership with the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles as we work together to develop a stronger justice system that promotes redemption, restoration, and transformation."
