The FCAB serves as a safe place for all denominations and members of the faith community to provide valuable input and feedback regarding appropriate criminal justice concerns. This Board meets as needed.

MISSION: To effectively and honestly collaborate with the Dallas County District Attorney in her effort to seek justice for all.

MEMBERSHIP: Faith leaders from all denominations or non-denominations with an interest in criminal justice and a passion for identifying solutions are welcome to join. Due to the sensitivity of the topics discussed, members will need to complete a criminal background check, However past criminal history does not automatically affect eligibility for membership.

GOALS:

  1. Criminal Justice - Drawing from their background, experience, and knowledge as leaders of faith, the FCAB will be active in addressing criminal and reformative justice concerns that impact the Dallas County community.
  2. Crime Prevention - While working to promote and support the efforts of the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office to vigorously prosecute violent and habitual offenders, the FCAB is equally committed to crime prevention by implementing, supporting, and improving innovative programs to break the cycle of criminal activity and incarceration for vulnerable populations.
  3. Engagement and Inclusion - FCAB will strive to promote inclusion and appreciation of all to establish a viable partnership between members of the faith community and the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office. The FCAB is committed to diversity, hard work, and re-imagining the traditional role prosecutors should play in a community. The Board also hosts Interfaith Community Forums, as needed,  to educate and engage faith leaders on vital issues or concerns plaguing the community.
