Josh is now looking for seed money to continue the advocacy work he does. He is focused on building an organization called Organize Justice. This unique organization is being built to civically engage and empower those who have first-hand experience with the justice system. Organize Justice will focus on Dallas-area organizing and state-wide policy reform initiatives in Texas.
