17th Annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty, Austin, Texas Saturday, October 29, 2016

cropped-stopexecutionslargest1.jpgThe 17th Annual March to Abolish the Death Penalty will be held in Austin, Texas on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at 2pm at the Texas Capitol on the south side.

Featuring Terri Been – sister of Texas death row prisoner Jeff Wood (Sentenced to death under the unjust Law of Parties). Jeff recently received a stay of execution after a grassroots campaign to stop his execution. We will be lobbying the legislature in January to permanently ban executions under the law of parties, as well as for the bill to abolish the death penalty that we successfully asked Senator Lucio to file in 2015.

We will have an open mic at the march for anyone who wants to speak out against the death penalty. Sign-ups for the open mic will start at 2 PM. We will hear some of the speakers at the capitol, then we will walk over to the governor’s mansion for some more speakers.
