Thanks to TMN IT'S OFFICIAL: AUSTIN WILL HOST THE 2005 NCADP ANNUAL CONFERENCE In January, we asked visitors to our website, subscribers to the TMN newsletter and others to contact the Board members of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and ask them to bring the Annual NCADP Conference to Austin. In an impressive showing of our grassroots strength, many, many people contacted NCADP about the conference. We heard back from D.C. that
"The NCADP Board is impressed with the Texas proposal -- and with the extraordinary level of grassroots support behind it."
The NCADP Board has made it official:
THE 2005 NCADP ANNUAL CONFERENCE WILL BE HELD IN AUSTIN!
The four-day 2005 conference will be held on the same weekend as the 6th Annual March to Stop Executions in October 2005!
Please send an email to the NCADP Board of Directors (through David Elliot, NCADP Communications Director) thanking them for inviting Texas to host the 2005 conference.
We would also like to thank David personally for his help in pressing our case to the Board of Directors and for forwarding so many emails from the Texas anti-death penalty grassroots community.
