The death penalty system is deeply embedded and also deeply divisive in Texas, yet there is little public discussion about how individuals and communities grapple with the legacies of this system.
Come explore the living pasts of the death penalty with families of executed Texans from the Fort Worth area and consider how memory may serve as a resource for restoring and reimagining community and building a more just and less violent Texas.
Hosted by the Texas After Violence Project with support from the Craig and Kathryn Hall Foundation. Co-sponsored by the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, Amnesty International, and Murder Victims’ Families for Human Rights.
