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
The State of Texas is scheduled to execute Ruben Gutierrez on July 16, 2024.  It is the sixth execution date he has faced since 2018. The State has repeatedly blocked his requests for DNA testing of crime scene evidence. Send an email in support of Gutierrez’s application for clemency or at least a reprieve.

Attend Events
This month, TCADP is hosting membership meetups in Austin, Dallas and Houston, as well as an online meeting of our book group on July 10.
