Help Abolish the Death Penalty
"Texas executes people of color, the mentally ill, the poor without adequate defense." --Attorney Brian Stull
Help us defend our title as the 1:00-2:00 pm champions. For a few years now, TCADP won a $1,000 bonus prize for having the most donors during the 1:00-2:00 pm giving hour. Let's repeat in 2018!
Please concentrate your giving on Friday, March 2 - 1:00 to 2:00 pm Central Standard Time! You might even think about giving at:
1:03 PM to mark the 3rd year in a row that Harris County has had no new death sentences
1:13 PM for the 13 people exonerated from Texas death row
1:19 PM for the 119 Texas counties that have never sent anyone to death row
1:41 PM for the 141 countries that have abolished the death penalty in law or practice
Can't make it during that time? No problem, just give during the 24-hour cycle of March 1, 6:00 pm to March 2, 6:00 pm.
Harris County, Texas has sent more people to death row that any other county in the United States. As a resident of Harris County, I feel a particular responsibility to work to stop this practice, which has a disproportionate effect on people of color, people with intellectual disabilities or emotional disorders, and people who are too poor to afford adequate legal representation.
The death penalty is arbitrary, costly, and dehumanizing. Your donation through Amplify Austin, helps us in the statewide task of education and outreach and advocacy on death penalty issues.
