At last weekend’s rally to Save Jeff Wood several of his nieces, nephews and their friends attended wearing t-shirts that read KADP, Kids Against the Death Penalty. The San Antonio Express News mentioned them in their story on the rally:
Wood’s relatives staged the rally with the Texas Moratorium Network, which wants a two-year moratorium on all death penalty cases. A second rally for Wood is planned for Aug. 16 in Austin.
Meanwhile, younger relatives have joined a group called Kids Against the Death Penalty.
“I’m here because Jeff Wood is innocent and on death row for a murder that he didn’t commit,” said Gavin Been, 11, Wood’s nephew.
Below is a video of them speaking with Capital-X about why they started KADP. These kids are amazingly articulate about how they feel about the death penalty.
