Why You Should Be a Member of TCADP!

Momentum clearly has shifted in the direction of abolition. Efforts here in Texas also are focused on creating the climate for change among elected officials and the public at large. Progress is already underway, as executions decline and new death sentences remain near historic low levels.

TCADP is the only statewide, grassroots membership organization that is working exclusively to end the death penalty in Texas. We are depending on you to help us increase the strength and capacity of our movement. Please become a member today and support TCADP with a generous, tax-deductible contribution!

You can become a member of TCADP with your credit card or e-check by clicking the button below, or sending a check or money order (made out to “TCADP”), along with your membership form, to: TCADP; 2709 S. Lamar; Austin, Texas 78704.

We encourage you to consider becoming a Sustaining Member. Avoid the hassle of dues renewal notices by signing up for a Sustaining Membership at the Student, Individual, Household, or Organizational Level.  This option will automatically renew your membership (through your credit card or checking account) each year on a date you choose.

Members are also invited to consider becoming a Partner for Justice.  This option allows you to spread out your financial support for TCADP over the course of a year and provides a steady source of income for the organization.
