As we all know, a lot of people are unaware of the conditions within TDCJ's prisons. Therefore, we need to spread the word. At TPCA, we believe one of the best ways to do that is by attending events in your area. On the calendar below, you will find political events along with other functions and get-togethers. Hopefully, you will find one to attend and volunteer at to help bring awareness to the issues. If you would like to host an event, scroll down and fill out the hosting form.
Beat the Heat Mock Cell Awareness Events
What is it? In an effort to bring awareness to the inhumane temperatures within the Texas Prisons, TPCA has a Mock Cell and Poster Exhibit that we bring to various locations throughout Texas. The Mock Cell has been heated to create a realistic experience. Our formerly incarcerated and family member volunteers are present to speak from first-hand experience.
Our Mock Cell events are typically conducted from May thru October. Currently, we are planning for this year's event. If you would like to host one of these events please contact us.
TPCA Virtual Meetings
One of the best ways to keep current on TPCA happenings is to join us on our Facebook group page for our Virtual Meetings. Hear from advocates, formerly incarcerated individuals, and more....
On occasion, TPCA has offered various training such as; parole, general advocacy, medical advocacy, political advocacy, etc. Our goal is to help give our community the knowledge and tools to advocate for their incarcerated loved ones.
