It didn’t take long to learn that [Act’s model] works. 164+ eradicated drug houses and reduced crime back that statement.
On November 5, 2019, over 400 guests congregated at the Moody Performance Hall to learn about Act’s Vision 2030, which includes plans to expand their work in Dallas from 2.5 square miles to over 88 square miles. Russ Brown and his wife, Renee, chaired the event and led a host committee that provided the underwriting of the event. Speakers at the Benefit included Mr. Brown, Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, and Act Founder Reid Porter.

Mr. Brown shared with the Benefit audience the special importance placed on attorneys to serve others and seek justice, and spoke of the pro bono work Brown Fox law partners Scott Self and David Denton have contributed to Brown Fox clients. “Every time [David’s and Scott’s] work with Act comes up, both attorneys light up and speak of recent cases, new friendships, case resolution celebrations, and reveal glowing smiles when we discuss the fact that kids now have safer streets to play on,” Mr. Brown shared. He also highlighted the impact of Act’s work, “It didn’t take long to learn that [Act’s model] works. 164+ eradicated drug houses and reduced crime back that statement.”

Act works with law firms like Brown Fox and neighborhood residents to hold the owners of dilapidated properties and drug houses accountable. Beyond simply shutting down drug houses, there has been a documented 65% reduction in crime in Act’s first target neighborhood. To learn more about Act, visit www.actforjustice.org.
