Advocating for the Unseen and the Unheard

Dear Supporters,

At Texas Defender Service, we advocate for the humanity of the unseen and the unheard. Our team does this work with incredible grace, kindness, and dedication to those they serve. As exoneree Anthony Graves says of our team in the video below, “They are bringing a human perspective to the game.” 

Will you give a gift to support Texas Defender Service’s life-saving work in 2024 and beyond?

This year alone, our team saved seven people from execution or death sentence, poured 11,196 hours into investigating the life histories of our clients, spent 613 hours providing intensive legal consultation to trial and post-conviction capital teams across the State of Texas, and took on the representation of four clients who were sentenced to mandatory life without parole sentences when they were children.

With your support, we can continue to advocate for humanity and justice in the New Year. Will you give a gift to empower us to continue to save lives and reunite families here in Texas, the epicenter of mass incarceration on the planet?

With gratitude,

Burke Butler
Executive Director
Texas Defender Service
