Marc Levin

Vice President of Criminal Justice, Texas Public Policy Foundation and Right on Crime

An attorney and accomplished author on legal and public policy issues, Marc began the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s criminal justice program in 2005. This work contributed to nationally praised policy changes that have been followed by dramatic declines in crime and incarceration in Texas. Building on this success, in 2010, Marc developed the concept for the Right on Crime initiative, a TPPF project in partnership with Prison Fellowship and the American Conservative Union Foundation. Right on Crime has become the national clearinghouse for conservative criminal justice reforms and has contributed to the adoption of policies in dozens of states that fight crime, support victims, and protect taxpayers.

In 2014, Marc was named one of the “Politico 50” in the magazine’s annual “list of thinkers, doers, and dreamers who really matter in this age of gridlock and dysfunction.” Marc has testified on criminal justice policy before Congress and before legislatures in Texas, Nevada, Kansas, Wisconsin, and California. He also has met with US Presidents, Speakers of the House, and the Justice Committee of Parliament to share his ideas on criminal justice reform.

Marc earned a BA in Plan II Honors and Government and a JD with honors from the University of Texas.

Marc participated in the second Square One Roundtable convening “Examining Criminalization, Punitive Excess, and the Courts: Implications for Justice Policy and Practice.”
