MoratSunday, October 15th, 2000
Austin, Texas. 3:00 pmTexas runs the most prolific and most problematic capital punishment system in the country. The State of Texas will seek the death penalty with little justification and it has no qualms carrying out executions despite troubling claims of innocence or injustice.
The Time For A Moratorium is Past Due!
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.
