Upcoming Executions:

Urgent!

Write the Board of Pardons and Paroles, and call or tweet the governor about the upcoming executions of:

Travis Runnels (#999505) on December 11th

Travis Runnels was sentenced to die for a 2003 attack on a prison guard. In the 16 years following, he has worked to change his life, taking responsibility for the harm he caused and working to inspire and help others. He has even written several books, one is a guide on surviving in prison and the other is called “Guidance On Navigating The Path To Love”. Travis Runnels made some tragic mistakes in his early life, but he is no longer a threat to society or to other prisoners. Texas should commute his sentence to Life rather than needlessly murdering him. Let Travis continue as a positive influence to the men around him. Let him live. 

Please help us speak out so that we end the year without another execution!
