Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty

TCADP is a statewide advocacy organization working to end the death penalty. Join our cause today!

Stop Executions
On March 7, 2023, the 15th Judicial District Court, Grayson County, withdrew Andre Thomas’s April 5th execution date to allow Thomas’s legal team reasonable time to investigate and prepare a threshold showing that Thomas is incompetent for execution. Thanks to everyone who signed and shared the petition to #SaveAndreThomas.

Advocate for Change
Bills to abolish the death penalty have been filed in the Texas House of Representatives and Texas Senate: State Representative Joe Moody (House District 78-El Paso) has filed HB 142, and State Senator Sarah Eckhardt (Senate District 14-Austin) has filed SB 516. Contact your lawmakers to express your support for these bills!
