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
On November 16, 2023, the State of Texas carried out its last execution of the year. David Renteria of El Paso was put to death after the U.S. Supreme Court denied his final appeal. He spent two decades on death row.

We are grateful to everyone who supported his request for clemency and for his attorneys, who fought tirelessly on his behalf.

Attend Events
 The TCADP 2024 Annual Conference: Creating Conscious Communities will take place on Saturday, March 2, 2024, at the Martin University Center on the campus of Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth, Texas. Join us for an inspiring day of education and advocacy! Read about our panelists and award recipients. More program details will be announced soon!
