The second organizing meeting to prepare for the 11th Annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty is on Saturday September 11 at Lily Hughes’ house in Austin from 3:00-4:30 pm. The address is 1311 East 13th Street, which is a few blocks east of I-35 (see map). If you need directions, call Scott Cobb at 512 552 4743 or Lily at 512 417 2241.
Please come to the organizing meeting and help us make this year’s march as great a success as last year’s!
Everyone who wants to help organize this year’s march is welcome to attend. Last year, we had the largest turnout since 2000 and the march was covered in all the state newspapers, including a photo on the cover of the Dallas Morning News. You can see some links to media coverage of last year on the march media page. The website also has videos of some of last year’s speakers.
The march itself is October 30 in Austin at 2 PM at the Texas Capitol.
The annual march is organized by several Texas anti-death penalty organizations, including the Austin chapter of the Campaign to End the Death Penalty, Texas Moratorium Network, the Texas Death Penalty Abolition Movement, Texas Students Against the Death Penalty, Texas Death Penalty Education and Resource Center, Death Penalty Free Austin, and Kids Against the Death Penalty.
