If you would like to volunteer at the TMN booth at the Texas Democratic Party this summer in Fort Worth June 8-10, please contact us and let us know. We need about 10 volunteers to help us collect petition signatures at the convention. In 2004, we collected more than 1700 signatures at the convention in Houston with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. In 2004, TMN’s Scott Cobb was on the platform writing committee prior to the convention and was elected to the Platform Committee by SD 14. On those committees, he persuaded the party to endorse a moratorium in the platform. This year, our goal is to keep support for a moratorium in the platform. We need your help though, so please volunteer!
In 2004, a new caucus was formed within the Democratic party called the “Death Penalty Reform Caucus”. At the first meeting of the caucus at the state convention in 2004, TDP Chair Charles Soechting dropped by to tell the caucus that he supported a moratorium.
This year’s meeting of the death penalty reform caucus at the Fort Worth Convention Center is in room 112 on Friday June 9 at 1 PM.
