The Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (TCADP) is a statewide, grassroots membership organization working to end the death penalty in Texas. TCADP engages in outreach, education, and advocacy aimed at raising awareness of issues related to the death penalty and mobilizing the citizens of Texas - and local and state elected officials - to support abolition.
TCADP seeks two summer interns to assist in the planning, preparation, and implementation of outreach and educational activities aimed at increasing awareness of issues associated with the death penalty. The interns will help to maintain the TCADP blog, website, and social media. They also will participate in outreach programs aimed at engaging faith communities and civic groups in Austin. Other tasks include research and writing, strategic communications, and political research as well as administrative support such as data entry, event planning, and phone outreach. Interns will be interacting with other staff, volunteers and community partners, and in some cases will be responsible for establishing new contacts and strengthening our relationships with existing partners.
All tasks shall be performed during TCADP office hours, between 9 AM to 5 PM, at a prearranged time each week. A workstation will be provided at the TCADP office, 2709 S. Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78704.
