Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty

TCADP is a statewide advocacy organization working to end the death penalty. Join our cause today!

Stop Executions
Ramiro Gonzales is set to be executed by the State of Texas on June 26, 2024, for a murder he committed just a few months after his 18th birthday. Today a profoundly changed person after spending nearly two decades on death row, Ramiro is a living and breathing example of our ability to grow and heal. Sign the petition to #SaveRamiro.

Attend Events
This month, TCADP is hosting membership meetups in Dallas and Houston, launching a summer lunch series in Austin, and participating in Juneteenth activites.
