TCADP is well-known for hosting a professional and affordable conference with inspiring speakers, informative workshops and great networking opportunities!
The TCADP Annual Conference will be held at University Christian Church, Fort Worth, Texas on the edge of the beautiful TCU campus and within miles of the Fort Worth Botanical Garden.
The 2014 Keynote Speaker during the Award Luncheon will be Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bob Ray Sanders. Bob Ray Sanders is often criticized for writing about things he could not have experienced because, some readers say, “he can’t be that old.” The truth is Bob Ray has been a professional journalist for 40 years and in three media: newspaper, television and radio. A Fort Worth native who knows and cares about his community, and those with whom he shares this planet, this is a columnist who is not afraid to speak out on behalf of downtrodden people.
The morning panel discussion will include Kathryn Kase, the Executive Director of the Texas Defender Service, and Shari Silberstein, the Executive Director of Equal Justice USA. Kathryn will provide valuable information on the role that Texas plays in the national movement and how we are providing the model for collaboration aimed at decreasing use of the death penalty in our state. Shari will frame the national movement and strategy for abolition, with a particular focus on state legislative efforts. EJUSA is pioneering a new outreach effort, Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty.
