Do the Texas Two-Step to Raise the Age!

HB 122 is stalled in the Senate! The House of Representatives passed legislation that would raise the age of mandatory adult prosecution from 17 to 18 years of age, allowing non-violent offenders who are 17 years of age to be charged as a minor.

Step 1: Call Senator John Whitmire, Chair of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, and let him know we want a hearing on HB 122 to Raise the Age of adult criminal responsibility. You can find the numbers for his Austin and Houston offices below:

  • Austin office: 512-463-0115
  • Houston office: 713-864-8701

Step 2: Click here to email your Senator and Lt. Governor Dan Patrick to ensure the Raise the Age bill gets heard in the Senate.

We need your voices to #backthefuture of Texas children. They are our No. 1 priority!
