Alison Brock is the Chief of Staff for Texas State Rep. Sylvester Turner. She and Turner worked to stop the execution of Derrick Johnson, including convincing the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles to take a second vote on whether to grant Johnson a stay of execution. Johnson was executed on April 30, 2009, shortly after this video was taken.
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.
