Bob Libal is a nationally recognized civil rights leader, community organizer, and the former executive director of Grassroots Leadership.
Bob has spent his entire adult life fighting for criminal justice and immigration reform. He has waged successful campaigns to close troubled private prisons, stood alongside communities impacted by the deportation and criminal justice system, and taken on powerful interests from private prison executives to ICE’s deportation forces.
Bob believes that Travis County should be a force for bold, progressive change. We must invest in transportation, housing, and support for those facing substance use disorders and those in need of mental health services, not pour hundreds of millions of dollars into a broken system of jailing poor people and communities of color.
