Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty

TCADP is a statewide grassroots organization working to end the death penalty in Texas through education and action. We welcome your participation in this work in any capacity.

Vigils to protest executions are held from 5:30p – 6:30p on the evenings of the executions on the south steps of the Capitol, 11th and Congress.

As you may have read, the U.S. Supreme Court granted a stay of the scheduled execution Hank Skinner.  Skinner was scheduled to be executed on March 24 for the murder of Twila Busby, even though critical DNA evidence that was collected at the crime scene has never been tested.  Mr. Skinner has steadfastly insisted he is innocent of the crime.  This case illustrates the importance of testing DNA when there is readily available scientific evidence.

Upcoming executions scheduled:

April 22:  William Berkley
April 27:  Samuel Bustamante (clemency campaign under way)
May 12:  Kevin Varga
May 13:  Billy Galloway
May 25:  John Alba
