Sharing Conversations on the Death Penalty

Last spring, I had a meeting with the Texas Coalition Against the Death Penalty (TCADP) here in my home. I suggested a series of monthly concerts around the state of Texas, starting in Austin and ending in Austin, going to 10 cities along the way. I would perform at all 12 events, but we would want to include other musicians and speakers from each city we visit. Amazingly, with hard work, the conversation became a reality this fall.

My thought was that this isn't a "you must join the anti-death penalty movement" so much as it would open and start the dialogue. Segments at each concert will be filmed to edit together as a one hour piece, shown at the final concert. These segments will include dialogue from folks attending the concerts talking about how they stand on the death penalty. I think it is important to start talking about the death penalty and the implications/repercussions of it all. The event will be called "Music For Life: Sharing Conversations on the Death Penalty."

Bless you, and thank you for your time and committment to creating a world of peaceful dialogue.

Love and Grace,
