Attend Events

TCADP invites your participation in the following meetings and events:

The State of Texas is scheduled to execute three people in August. TCADP members hold vigils throughout Texas. The most recent addition is in Fort Worth at the Brite Divinity School. The vigil will take place at the Robert Carr Chapel located at 2855 S. University Drive. We are grateful to our members throughout the state who are participating in vigils to show their objections to state-sponsored killing. To see a complete list of vigil locations, click here.

Austin
University United Methodist Church will host an event with Shane Claiborne on Thursday, September 29th. Shane will be discussing his latest book, Executing Grace. Throughout the book, Shane offers a powerful and persuasive appeal for the abolition of the death penalty.  Shane tells stories of horrific pain and heroic grace.  He interviews victims of violent crimes, survivors of death row, lawyers, experts, and even an executioner.

Shane is a prominent speaker, activist, and best-selling author.  Shane worked with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, and founded The Simple Way in Philadelphia.  He heads up Red Letter Christians, a movement of folks who are committed to living “as if Jesus meant the things he said.”
