The Texas State Community Council (TSCC) is is the first of a growing network of State Community Councils affiliated with POPULAR (Power Over Poverty Under Laws of America Restored), a national legal reform organization, committed to helping poor and other disadvantaged people access affordable and competent legal representation, important civil and criminal justice system reforms, as well as appropriate judicial oversight.
TSCC is a regional human rights organization geared for community policing and criminal justice system reform through anti-corruption initiatives. While its primary focus is criminal law matters, each TSCC division addresses a wide variety of government misconduct allegations and public integrity concerns. The Abilene Division of TSCC serves residents of Taylor County, Texas and is also headquarters for the entire TSCC.
- TSCC is committed to good local, state, and federal government with emphasis on combating government waste, fraud, and abuse.
- TSCC is particularly focused on human rights violations, directly or indirectly caused by government misconduct.
- TSCC seeks to deter crime by exposing criminality among government officials and helping to ensure that average Americans are not subjected to unwarranted criminal investigation, prosecution, and/or punishment.
- TSCC is committed to helping poor and other disadvantaged people access affordable and competent legal representation, important civil and criminal justice system reforms, as well as appropriate judicial oversight.
Working with POPULAR, its corporate sponsor, and sister organizations, TSCC is:
- building its membership ranks and corresponding base of volunteer support;
- introducing its members to the anatomy of effective grassroots good government advocacy;
- raising general public awareness about government misconduct allegations and public integrity concerns;
- petitioning government officials and private sector organizations (such as bar associations) for specific help in addressing government misconduct allegations and public integrity concerns;
- intervening on behalf of Sustaining TSCC Members through organization position statements and community activism;
- coordinating and otherwise facilitating multi-faceted, case-based advocacy challenging specific instances of public and/or private sector misconduct as well as related patterns and practices; and
- as much as possible, being a source of validation and morale support for its members.
Any Texan can join the TSCC for the city, county, town, or similar political subdivision in which he or she lives. There is no cost to become a lifetime TSCC member, though all TSCC members are encouraged to become “Sustaining Members” for an annual fee of $75.00.
