Delia Perez Meyer, Secretary Delia is fighting to exonerate her brother, Louis Castro Perez, who is on death row in Texas. Hooman Hedayati, Board Member and attorney Jeanette Popp was Chairperson of Texas Moratorium Network from 2001 to 2004. In March 2009, Jeanette published a book with Wanda Evans entitled "Mortal Justice: A True Story of Murder and Vindication", which can be bought on Amazon. Jeanette's daughter Nancy was murdered in Austin in 1988. Jeanette became intimately familiar with the many flaws of the Texas criminal justice system after two innocent men were wrongfully convicted of her daughter's murder and spent 12 years in prison. They were exonerated and released in 2001. The real killer was convicted in October 2002. Jeanette successfully pressured the District Attorney not to seek the death penalty for her daughter's murderer. Jeanette's riveting testimony in 2001 helped convince two Texas legislative committees to vote in favor of moratorium legislation. She frequently travels across the nation speaking out against the death penalty. Texas Moratorium Network is organized as a 501 (c)(4) social welfare organization. Donations to Texas Moratorium Network are not tax-deductible, because TMN's primary purpose is to lobby for a moratorium on executions.
