Texas Coalition to Abolition the Death Penalty

The Austin TCADP chapter will hold its next event this Tuesday, September 28.  This will be a panel discussion about capital punishment featuring three individuals who view it from very different and unique perspectives.  The panel members include:

  • Professor Rob Owen, UT Law School and Co-Director of the Capital Punishment Center. Rob has defended people facing the death penalty at every level of state and federal court system, including arguing successfully at the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • Reverend Sidney Hall, Senior Pastor, Trinity United Methodist Church, Austin.  Rev. Hall leads a congregation that describes itself as inclusive and that is active in social justice issues.
  • Michael Heath, murder victim family.  Michael brings a voice and perspective to the issue of capital punishment that answers the challenge, “…but what if it were your family member…?”

This event will be held on Tuesday, September 28th, 7 PM, at St. John’s United Methodist Church, 2140 Allandale Road, Austin.
TCADP is a statewide grassroots organization working to end the death penalty in Texas through education and action.  MFSA supports the work of TCADP, and 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.
