Texas Senator Rodney Ellis: Toward fair and effective justice
- June 24, 2015
Media coverage and demonstrations stemming from tragedies around the nation have brought necessary, and far too long delayed, attention to the pressing need to fix our broken justice system.

The problems aren’t unique to Baltimore, Ferguson, and Staten Island. We face the same injustices – if not worse – right here at home.
