Some of our best allies in the legislature were on our side because constituents pressured them from even before the session and refused to let up. We believe that if constituents keep reminding their legislators of the facts–with letters, phone calls, visits, photo-copies of newspaper articles–that legislators will become moratorium supporters. What we need now is dedicated volunteers all around the state to “adopt a legislator” and to focus on turning that legislations into a moratorium supporter.
Texas Moratorium Network (TMN) is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of mobilizing statewide support for a moratorium on executions in Texas. Significant death penalty reform in Texas, including a moratorium on executions, is a viable goal if the public is educated on the death penalty system and is encouraged to contact their elected representatives to urge passage of moratorium legislation.
