Statewide Meeting to Save Kenneth Foster Jr.

Kenneth Foster, Jr. was sentenced to death in May 1997 for driving a car from which Mauriceo Brown got out and shot Michael LaHood, Jr. Kenneth's case is currently at a critical juncture, as the state of Texas has recently given him an execution date of August 30, 2007. Kenneth could be killed simply because of the gross misuse of the Law of Parties. As the Austin Chronicle has put it, he was in "the wrong place at the wrong time." Kenneth is a founding member of D.R.I.V.E., a group of death row prisoners who organize using methods of nonviolent resistance, to fight for humane conditions on death row in Texas.

Join a campaign to save the life of Kenneth Foster, Jr. and help shine a light on the injustice of the Texas death penalty system! Join us for an organizing meeting of groups and individuals who want to work together on this campaign.
