Participants will also meet with legislators to voice their concerns about the death penalty.  Learn more and RSVP here.

El Paso
El Pasoans Against the Death Penalty, a chapter of TCADP, meet on the last Tuesday of the month.  The next meeting will take place on February 24th at 7:00 PM at St. Pius X Church in the Pedro Maldonado Room (1050 North Clark Drive).

Houston
TCADP’s Houston Chapter meets every other month on the 1st Tuesday of the month, starting in January.  All meetings will take place at 7 PM at Central Market, 3815 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX 77027.

The next chapter meeting will occur on March 3rd.  Dr. Betty Gilmore, Director of the Center for Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management at Southern Methodist University, will speak about the book that she and former death row prisoner, Nanon Williams, co-authored. The Darkest Hour: Shedding Light on the Impact of Isolation and Death Row in Texas Prisons addresses the widespread impact of extreme isolation experienced by thousands of incarcerated individuals in Texas prisons — many of whom will be integrated back into society. It presents an in-depth view of the Texas prison system with a specific focus on death row and solitary confinement.

Dr. Gilmore will also show the film “The Darkest Hour”, which exposes the inhumane impact of extreme isolation experienced by those incarcerated nationwide.
