This is Todd Willingham’s family who continue to fight tenaciously for justice for Todd. Before his execution, Todd had told his parents, “Please don’t ever stop fighting to vindicate me.” In this picture are Todd’s family members at the Texas Forensic Science Commission in Dallas on Sept 17. They won’t ever give up, and we won’t give up standing beside them.

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.
