TCADP’s September 2014 Alert contains information about scheduled executions in Texas, our calendar of events for the month ahead, and great news from North Carolina about the exonerations of two men who spent 30 years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit.
TCADP’s August 2014 Alert provides information on scheduled executions and the ongoing lethal injection debacle. It also takes a closer look at investigations into the cases of Cameron Todd Willingham and Carlos DeLuna, both of which bolster evidence that the State of Texas has executed innocent people.
Today marks 38 years since the United States Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty and paved the way for the resumption of executions. The Court’s decision in Gregg vs. Georgia on July 2, 1976 found that the new death penalty laws of several states (including Texas) “promised” to make the process fairer and less arbitrary.
Thanks to your incredible support and generosity, TCADP won an extra $1,000 for having the most donors between 1:00 and 2:00 PM through the Amplify Austin campaign!! So far, we’ve raised more than $3,100 with donations ranging from $20 to $500 (not including that extra $1,000). It’s been a great day!
Until 6pm, you can give at https://amplifyatx.ilivehereigivehere.org/TCADP/overview
Thanks to your steadfast support and participation, we are dismantling the death penalty county-by-county. TCADP cannot continue this work without you! View this slideshow of highlights from some of our events over the past year.
