Oppose Gas Chamber Executions in California!

The California District Attorneys Association and Senator Joel Anderson of San Diego have introduced a bill to bring back executions by gas chamber. Yes, you read that right: after the SAFE California campaign nearly succeeded in replacing the death penalty, the district attorneys of California responded with a wild attempt to take us back to an even darker age.

Sign the petition to the California District Attorneys Association and Senator Joel Anderson to let them know that the people of the United States reject this desperate attempt to return California to the dark days of gas chamber executions. Let them know that SB 779 is shockingly misguided and out of step with the values of the people of the United States of America.

We are appalled that the California District Attorneys Association (CDAA) is sponsoring SB 779 by Senator Joel Anderson, a bill to bring back gas chamber executions to California. This misguided proposal is shockingly out of touch with the values of the people of the United States. Law enforcement in the United States should be focusing resources and energy on reducing crime, apprehending and holding offenders accountable, and making our communities safe. Legislation to bring back gas chamber executions is unconscionable. We urge the California District Attorney’s Associate to revoke sponsorship of SB 779 and invest its time and expertise on real criminal justice strategies proven to reduce crime.
