TCADP is pleased to offer opportunities for virtual events and programs during this time of social distancing. This summer, we launched a book group and a new webinar series, “Seeking Justice in Texas.” These online gatherings are open to all supporters. See below for details and links to register.
TCADP Book Group
The first meeting of the TCADP book group took place on July 15, during which we discussed The Guardians by John Grisham. As a group, we will read a mix of memoirs, fiction, and non-fiction with criminal justice themes. Our next book selection is Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. We are set to meet on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 at 7:30 PM Central Time.
