Good news down in Texas!
The Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, one of NCADP's affiliates, has long been an all-volunteer organization. But Scott Cobb, a member of TCADP's executive committee, informs me that the group is now in the process of hiring their first-ever staff member! This is going to strengthen both TCADP and the anti-death penalty movement in Texas. It is also a sign that the abolition movement in this country continues to attract greater levels of funding, although we still lag far, far behind other social justice movements.
