Thank you for taking the time to visit our page; we are thankful for your interest in our organization!
KADP originated as a group of kids who came together to speak their minds about the injustice of the death penalty. Although the founding members and current board members are no longer children, they remain dedicated abolitionists who are passionate about educating the youth of today and tomorrow on the biased and arbitrary ways Capital Punishment meted out in Texas.

Who We Are:
Kids Against the Death Penalty (KADP) is an organization dedicated to ending the Death Penalty across the World
Members of KADP believe that the death penalty is wrong for the following reasons:
Did You Know?????
As of June 2019, the United States has 2,673 inmates sitting on death row; 732 inmates in California, 349 inmates in Florida, and 223 inmates in Texas. A majority of these "victims" who are on death row are poor, and cannot and/or could not afford proper representation! Many of them suffer from mental illness, or mental retardation. Some did not commit the crime, but were sentenced to die under the Law of Parties; and will die for murders the judge and the juries know they did not commit!
The Death penalty costs 4 times as much as housing an inmate for life! The average death penalty cost (per offender) costs $1 million to $3 million dollars (and many go as high as $7 million dollars), while housing an inmate for life costs only about $500,000. You do the math!
